A Moment in Time

A Moment in Time


A Railway Buffett Bar

on a rainy November evening

we sat amongst a throng of tables

as the air filled with smoke

Silently we sipped our drinks

wishing to be somewhere else

a place of tranquility and alone

but people pushed about us

The rush hour was in full swing

he looked searchingly into his beer

I at his profile deep in my own thoughts

With no hint of movement he said softly

"I am in love with you"

A pause seized the moment

a strange silence enveloped us

"I am in love with you too"

We looked intently into 

each others eyes

deep into those brown eyes

leaving aside the white

luminous seas around them

No flicker of emotion was made

only an inner recognition

We left together

out into the wintry night
