Daily Prompt #1
You’re sitting at a café when a stranger approaches you. This person asks what your name is, and, for some reason, you reply. The stranger nods, “I’ve been looking for you.” What happens next?
I was sitting at a cafe,
& sipping some coffee.
Gazing continuously on a spot,
Lost in some random thoughts.
And suddenly, out of nowhere,
there appeared a stranger.
Breaking my thoughts flow,
he had a question to throw.
My name was what he asked,
God knows why, I replied.
On listening to that,
he took out a card.
and the envelope he did hand over,
I slowly opened the cover,
And was amazed to read what it contained.
A ‘sweet apology’ and ‘let’s be friends again’ note it had.
It was from a long lost friend,
who wanted a fresh start after the bitter end.
The reason he sent a note,
The reason he wrote,
was that I warned him not to show his face again,
By not coming in person, he wanted to save me the pain.
I was moved by this sweet gesture,
It indeed gave me some joy & pleasure.
After all, I too have a heart,
How could I let my friend depart?
I accepted his apology,
And this was my part of “What Happened Next?” story.
