    Bus Stop

    I could see it in your face
    as you walked by
    after you saw my wave
    and stopped.

    And this is how
    you ended up with me at
    the bus stop.

    As you spoke,
    you talked with your hands.
    I watched the
    people board my bus.

    You were upset.

    After the people cleared out
    we sat down on the bench
    and I focused myself.

    Although tired, I look at you
    listening, I didn't look at
    my watch.

    I felt your
    emotional pulse
    and it slowed down
    when you were done.

    I squeezed your
    strong arm reassuring you
    that all was well.

    You exhaled and I
    straightened my carnation pin
    as we stood up.

    I pointed at the smiling
    moon, "Look she's still
    up there."
    Just as you and I are still
    here.

    I enjoy this touching story especially the last stanza: I pointed at the smiling
    moon, "Look she's still
    up there."
    Just as you and I are still
    here.

    Try to live in harmony with people and nature

    Well done Buh. You old romantic x

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.
