I so wish that I could go back in time and live that one evening all over again...

That evening, how can I forget it.
You promised to take me to the movie, ours together for the first time.
I was all dressed up and ready, waiting for you
Eyes fixed so anxiously on the gate, just waiting for you
Trying to hide the gleam of my eyes
flickering of my heart
yet I know I failed on that so badly

It was evident by that mischievous smile of my best friend
who waited by my side, sitting on the porch.
And then the gate opened
and it was you, feet wanted to jump and run,
Just could not dare to do so
Hesitation chained my feet

And then you came and sat just next to me
so close, I could smell your cologne
So close, I could feel your smile
So close, I just couldn't believe it was real
and yet, it was so real and so happening

Years later, how I so badly wish to turn the time back
and relive just that one evening of my life
feel you so close to me just once again
live my entire life in that one moment again
all over again...
just for once...
