When she stepped into the barroom

He felt that old desire

What he thought he had forgotten-

Embers of their fire

She only glanced around the tables

Didn’t know he would be there

It was only when she saw him

Remembered how she cared

Life had come between them

Separation by their pasts

Sad desolation caused them not to last.

Cruelty of circumstance, and

Tragedy would have its dance,

Couldn’t overcome it, were given no last chance.

He picked up the bottle, leaving memories behind

Didn’t try to speak to her, thinking it more kind.

She pretended not to see him

But her heart was well aware

She wouldn’t let him see any feeling she might care.

Love and life sometimes, is not that pictured book

She turned and left hurriedly, without a second look.
