Graduation day

People were scurrying through the corridor.
Caps, gowns, smiles
I leaned against a wall, looking for you.
Families, friends, strangers
One million people passed me by.
Laughter, chatter, footsteps
You called my name. Delighted, I looked up.
Concern, tall, beauty
You asked me why I waited in the hall.
Love, longing, you
We walked and talked and in my mind
we were together again.
Love, you, life

But then reality set in
and I watched you walk away.
Reality set in
and I was all alone.
