he finds himself outside the restaurant
he and his ex-wife had dined
on another Valentine's night long ago.
A young couple now lock eyes
feasting at the same table as they had.
The two lovers then disappear,
he strokes his ex-wife's rich blonde locks
in days when all seemed possible.
The haunting image fades away,
there's a sad ghost reflection in the window.
They spot his presence discussing him
and the words they say will be unkind,
he walks... leaving the restaurant behind.
