Lovers Reunited Poem by Deanna Samuels

Lovers Reunited

Rating: 5.0

The train pulls into the station
Passengers alight
Look around to see what direction to take
Some go at a brisk gait
Others a slower pace
The station platform gradually empties
But wait, there is a loner holding back
Looking, seeking out a familiar face
A hand shading his eyes from bright sun light
He carries a worried look upon his brow
Suddenly, his countenance changes
Changes to a huge smile, an enormous grin
His arms rise, stretched out in front
Walks forward briskly, he has seen his goal
It is her, his own, his only true love
She walks quickly towards him
His steps turn into an urgent run
They come together with a tight loving embrace
Each looking into the others eyes
The love between them undeniable
Holding one another tightly
As though never again wanting to be parted
They kiss lovingly, deeply, taking their time
Slowly, reluctantly, they unfold and pull away
Smiling, hold each other at arms-length
Looking longingly at each another
Gradually, tightly entwining their fingers
Not wanting to be apart, not even for a moment
Deliriously happy they are once again as one
He slips his arm around her waist
They walk slowly towards the nearest exit gate

This poem was inspired by a scene I witnessed when the train I was on pulled into a station.
