we rode the cable car from Singapore
feeling on top of the world,
you laughed, no sign of the pain to come.
We travelled on the old monorail,
(a high speed train has since taken its place)
you strolled in the heat with joy on your face.
I remember a myriad of colours
in the exotic butterfly park
and a Hindu festival we stumbled across
so surreal in the soporific evening air.
I recall a giant stone lion
and the golden sand of Palawan Beach,
those were fine days...but now you're out of reach.
