And there she was, walking along

and her mind hummed a happy song.

Wondering what to talk about,

and after a pause:

she realised

she was unaware of where she was.

Confused and dazed;

and groping for words

she finally said,

“listen to those charming birds!”

Oh, you should’ve seen her smile!

As she was lost in her dream awhile

which was,

being with the person she was with then;

and she wasn’t aware of the impending disaster, when–

her mind began to be filled with whys.

And she realised how fast time flies.

She looked at her dress,

tended to that hair curl,

but all along on his mind, was some other girl.

Oh poor dreamer, I wish she had known

that at times, it is better to walk alone.
