They met again …

17 Apr

They would keep in touch – they had promised.  He had failed to keep the promise.

It was seven years now.
He recognized her immediately: That twinkle in the eyes, The way she tilted her head when she spoke. The incessant smile. The tapping of fingers. Those eyes lingering over the kids.
Seemed nothing had changed. 

Time froze. The three hours passed in a jiffy.
She never mentioned the un-reverted attempts to get in touch. There was so much to catch up with.

They parted. Goodbyes – promises made again.
He smiled faintly.
He recognized her. But he had stopped knowing her.
