Here we are a few years later, 

On the same rooftop where we first met..

I lie down beside you 

For the sake of old times,

With a hint of a smile

You say,

“The blanket of stars above us 

Looks the same as it did 

On the day when it stood witnessing our first kiss,

Remember how we danced after that kiss? 

Shoulder to shoulder, 

A smile for a smile that night,”

Yes dear love,

Back then,

Love did look pretty on you..

You inch closer to me 

And your arm brushes against mine 

I release the breath 

Which i’ve been holding,

And I catch you staring at the twinkling stars,

I catch a sparkling glint in your eye. 

Is it for happiness or are they tears? 

I just can’t tell.

You whisper a name 

A name I forget as soon 

as it is said 

Your warm breath fogs 

In the sudden chill of the night 

We’re still in love, you say..

I continue looking at the stars with you 

they wink in return at us..

Then I stand up and give you a hand 

Let’s dance again, I say 

Shoulder to shoulder, 

A smile for a smile,

Just for the sake of the old times.

Because till this night,

love does look pretty on you..
