The Twilight Love

The time stood still for him, since they last met
With the pillage, loot and riots everywhere
It was each other’s lives they wished to save
Parted their ways, bidding tearful goodbyes
The war followed, ensured they never met
Never heard of other for years to come
the auburn sun reminded him of her
rainy misty clouds made him long for her
snowfall brought back her memories afresh
Years passed, till he decided to get back
Now all greying, wasnt sure it was right
Reached the same old meeting place, like old times
The big tree under which they met, all old
Saw a silhouette, wearing the same scarf
He knew by his heart’s instincts it was her
Hands intertwined, their twilight love did bloom.
