I spent this evening in tears.
watching and listening,
deep in the soul of ”Madam Butterfly”

Tears because of its pathos,
and of memories
shared so long ago.

Shared with a gentle girl
who still fills my thoughts.
Of youth and innocence,
long gone,
but not forgotten.

Over the years
our paths crossed and parted
but never ran together.

I will always wonder,
What If?
