It had been too long;
There's no news of Your whereabouts.
It was...I forgot when
'U' made me stop,stand still,
Staring at 'U' at the zebra-crossing.
Do 'U' remember ?
'U' were subverting the roads
With Your fingers,
Saying- Be careful !

Now I violate traffic-rules
Without being injured
By vehicles.
Reserving the swelling of heart,
Time sinks

Could 'U' recall the date
We had sailed the street,
Crossed by a cat ?
