You are just back from a social gathering and your mind is heavy. Sometimes meeting relatives can be a source of pain and discomfort, even it is after ages.

The Last Romance

Love cannot be curtailed
As romance is hailed

He had not been her first love

Yet was much above 
His presence made her quiver

In delight and anticipation

Sending pleasant shivers

Like an invitation
In a short time

Life regained its shine

Her only chance
To make memories

Away from her miseries

His eyes held her captive

Her willing heart equally receptive
This was not to be

Not forever

Her last romance it seemed

She would always treasure
