...and it happened

He saw her, coming up to him...
She was just as he remembered,
He had never met her, he knew her for ages...
Time didn't exist any longer.

She embraced him, she had missed him,
He sat there frozen and numb, not knowing what to do....
He absorbed her presence..
Never to lose this moment till he dies.

She looked at him, he couldn't meet her gaze,
He felt guilty or shy or confused...
He thought of something silly to say, something absurd, something funny,
But he no longer knew how to speak...

The lights went dim...
Their fingers intertwined,
Her fingers on his chest...
His lips on her forehead.

Through the darkness ...
In the dim light that only a distant movie can cast,
He saw her hair on her face, and her big beautiful eyes on him,
He kissed her fingers...not knowing how can he be this lucky.

She cuddled up besides him,
With the arm of a chair seperating them...
Trying to freeze the moment in time,
While the guy on the next seat orderd food.

They roamed like two long lost friends...
They had never met before,
She trying to hold his hand in the jacket pocket...
He trying to get the ticket stub between their hands.

He wanted to hold her,
He wanted to hold on...
He didn't want to get back home,
He didn't want the world to exist.

They just sat their, with water droplets troubling them every few seconds...
They could not be bothered...
Not anymore,
Not ever.

The ride back didn't make sense...
The sounds from the jealous people around couldn't reach 'em,
It didn't matter when they got there...
Coz they didn't wanna get there, they just had to.

He will always remember her last touch...
Her face while she smiled her goodbye.
Her fingers longing for a touch, a final touch...
The sadness in her eyes.

They might meet again,
They might never...
It may never happen,
But this is their's, forever and eternity...

Yeah I know....
Guess what we have some new recruits!!
I never knew Katty had a heart ...

Or Is she really one of them or somebody else??
