Fancy Fantasy

Oh it’s just my fancy fantasy
To meet you on the lane
To see your crooked, dimpled grin
Your rain soaked hair again

Across the cafeteria
I caught your sideways glance
Day after day, break after break
Persistence led to chance

My phone would beep, my pocket buzzed
But mostly conversation
Face-to-face, eye-to-eye
Until our Graduation

You were smart and charming
I could see it when I knew you
Yet all your dreams were orphaned
You let life happen to you

At times I’ll wonder where you are
Roaming in the mountains
Drawing plans for builders
Throwing pennies in the fountains

The way our efforts dwindled
The way our silence grew
What we forged could never last
I grieved what I so knew

Oh it’s just my fancy fantasy
To meet you on the lane
Two decades past and school dissolved
Would you still know my name?
