When we meet again

Years later shall we meet
In a cafe in a stranger part
Of this world.
I will read poetry to you, and
You will read poetry to me
While sipping coffee, and
Not knowingly
We will drink from each other.
We will talk about how
Poets pour life in words.
We will talk about men
And women who failed
In writing good verses, like us.
We will talk about men,
And women who couldn't weave
A better story.
And when the evening falls
We will walk till our roads divide.
It'll be time to depart again
And I would stand firm before you
Under the moonlit sky, and
You'll bid me a goodbye forever!
