She sat by the sill sipping on her coffee,
Her body taut to her surrounding.
Flipping through the pages of memories,
She quietly smiled and reminisced;
thanking the Almighty for all the moments.
The moments defining her metamorphosis,
from a girl to a woman.
Chanced upon a dusty picture,
of a ride from her romancing days.
Quietly, sliding it beneath the covers,
she wondered if they’d make a perfect couple,
with all their incompetencies and imperfections.
Now with different partners,
fulfilling their societal responsibilities.
Deeply etched in her soul forever.
