A perfect stranger

The first time at the coffee shop
I met you through a common friend
You said you were here on a short trip
And I felt no interesting grip
I did not like you, you were different
Compared to man of my dreams
But here I am writing about you
Am I in crazy or so it seems

I had no intention of seeing you again
But found myself sitting next to you
In the movie along with friends
While I wondered at the screen so bright
You held my hand a little tight
With mixed feeling I managed a smile
Everything felt normal only for a while

Then we went to restaurant nearby
Where the lights were low
They had their tables outside
Under the moonlight glow
Could be because of the lousy movie
I found you interesting
Could be because of the drink mailbu
I found myself relaxing
Could be because of the full moon
I found the night charming
Then you kissed me
I closed my eye and I felt like crying

No questions & no explanations
I rested my head on your shoulders
And my face on your chest
As you stroked my hair
I was feeling at my best
It felt so right and so perfect
Is this a crush?
Or something more
What’s this rush?
That’s sweeping me off the floor

For the next two days
I had my best dates
The more time we spent
The more I repent
Because I started liking
The feeling of 'us' was growing
Our ex friends will be angry,
May be sad or blue
But I have these feelings for true

It was then a week since I met you
And you have to go
There is nothing I can do or say
You live so far away
But there are cars, trains and planes
And we could meet anyway

Blowing out a fine kiss you flew
Far above the clouds and my reach
And all those thoughts about you grew
Like a song from radio
That I keep singing on and on
With no reason or a clue
I keep thinking about you for long
About the times we spent
And I keep wondering
About the words you meant

Hey perfect stranger
Will you remember me?
Just a little if not too much trouble
If I remember you, will that help or you fickle?
Will you remember me just a little?

* dedicated to my friend Natalie and to love that found her
