Hello Stranger

Hello stranger

Do you remember

Me from before?

I hope you didn’t forget

Because you never left my mind

Way back then

I couldn’t express myself

Awkward touches and

Shy glances

I couldn’t make you

Understand

You flew to another place

And left me here

With unresolved feelings

And lips longing for your kiss

Time moved on

As it always does

But part of me

Remains back there with you

Now that we’re here

Under a different sky

And moon

Hello stranger

It’s nice to meet you again.
