He walked away😊

She sat there

as he walked away

after they shook hands.

Oh! that handshake

the touch

of his hand

touched her soul.

She felt an emotion

hitherto unknown.

She felt

as if his hand

was meant to be

in hers.

The touch

made her feel

connected to him

more than ever before.

He did not notice

the longing in her eyes

silly boy!

She wanted the handshake

to never,

never end.

Her eyes met his eye

Oh! those innocent

and unaware eyes

Eyes,unaware

of the love she felt for them.

Then he turned

and swiftly walked his way

but she remained caged,

trapped in that moment

for the whole day.

She froze

her heartbeat rose

Stop him!

her heart beseeched.

But the handsome man

unaware again

slowly walked away.

She kept gazing,

looking at him,growing smaller

and going farther

with each passing second.

She hoped

he would turn,

look back

and flash a smile.

But her boy

just walked away

uninformed

that she

was staring at him

in the manner

a mother looks

at her newborn baby.

Such was her love

for him

so was her longing.

But

the gentleman walked away

without looking back

leaving her with a smile,

a tear

and a hope

for their eyes to meet

again.
