That feeling of nervous anticipation 

I had almost forgotten 

Skin alive with electricity

Senses dialled to 11

It could have been yesterday

I only wish it was

But 5 years had passed

Without the light from those smiling eyes

At the time it felt like forever

In that moment a second

From the first hello

All the time in-between obliterated 

Lost in a joy I forgot

The consuming doubt of most days

Her’s the only voice in my head

That minute the only time 

As if we’d always been there

Those years consigned to history

Comforting rhythm returned never faltered

Those smiling eyes in turn bringing smiles
