April in August

The evening I saw April in August
That was the best night of my life

She was the girl
The one I had a crush on in High School
Who didn't know I existed

Twenty years later
we meet
She is seeing me
for the first time

We held hands
We rolled down a grassy hill
We got to know each other

Not kids anymore
A man and a woman
In the world
Under the stars

For a moment I felt peace.

Then - She went home to her husband.

Then - I had to say goodbye.
