No More Wonder

He stood at the window

Staring off into space

He looked different but

The difference was only slight

He had a touch of grey

That had frosted his hair

But his built and mannerisms

Were still the same

How many times had she wondered

Where he was now

Today she could reach out

Touch him and turn back time

If only she was brave enough

She just smiled a little

And quietly turned and left

Sure he would never remember

The shy girl from school
