I saw your name,
And a smile flickered on my face,
I thought I’m going to see you again,
from way up that near.
I tried to shake away your image,
Standing against the table in front,
Talking something intelligible and beyond my comprehend,
I was in my head when someone else walked in,
A well presented literature with your name staring from the screen,
That was from week before when my hopes shattered with grief,
I still managed to read,
With my brain screaming - Why lord? Why? Why not him?
A new schedule came in,
With your name again plastered on the sheet,
This time I was certain,
It would you who will walk in,
So there I took the front seat,
In hopes of you coming to teach.
Minutes rolled into hour,
And some other department stepped in,
So there again went my hopes down the drain,
I hogged on caffeine to come out of haze.
One of these days; please do come in,
Even if it’s just to say,
How we ruined your evening.
I know you got your support system,
To take your place,
But all my heavy thoughts,
