Goodbye Now

I saw you pause, recover, then move on,
amid the bustle of your city crowd,
I too was struck motionless, pale and wan,
before shuffling on muttering out loud.

You looked so tall, so handsome, somehow,
so far removed from that young lad when,
you and I held hands making future vows
amid the clutter of your secret den.

Now I, through the near empty city streets,
amongst the debris of a hurried day,
recall that brief moment when you, so neat,
frowned on me who merely got in your way.

Although hurt by blank face and furrowed brow
I thank you for our brief past, goodbye now.
