Paddington Station. Platform One.
Your beauty shines out
In the monochrome station
Sooty platform one.
We liked each other
Long ago when first we met
Such grace, we still do.
Your tinkling laughter
Your voice in the night sighing
I listen for you
Your taste and your touch
The essence of your humour
Spring comes to my soul.
