One night you walked home 
past the River Dee, 
you stride till you reach 
the only bench 
facing the tide, 
overlooking your ex's 
on the other side of LLangollen, 
steps away, 
you can hear lovers 
giggle, exchanging sweet 
like an empty seat 
of the bus the other day, 
and from afar, 
crisp sound of dried leaves 
stepped over, 
you then remembered your 
mother retracing the image 
of the Virgin on 
her old satin cloth, so
you inched your way

sat on the stone beside 
the causeway, 
away from the screeches, 
giggles and recollections, stared 
at the moon on the water, 
the water reflected 
in your eyes, 
teary, then your 
eyes as steady as they 
were, all they can do 
is to glance at the house, again 
and again, as blank thoughts,

distinguish that old familiar
