Love at the Airport Poem by Dilantha Gunawardana


As the pneumatic tires of an Airbus screech against the tarmac
The heart yields to the melody of an inebriating track
She awaits his return to the shores of the tiny island nation
To rekindle where once there was a melting passion

He is gazing outside from a miniature window
At the coconut trees that rock to the wind's flow
The home town he left in pursuit of an invaluable education
Now back where he belonged in the teardrop island nation

She strolls to the big screen where flights are aplenty
A flight number the ambrosia to the heart no longer in vacuity
As memories deluge of good times of the nostalgic yesteryear
There is even the trickling fervor of an impatient tear

He gathers pace as he descends down from the aircraft's loft
Yearning to gaze at her pitch black getaways tender and soft
Longing to touch the satiny strands of her cascading locks
To let his hands navigate her tresses as their hugging hearts unlock

Then in a collage of an airport terminal the apical moment arrives
Shrieks of joy reverberate as joyous tears thrive
As forces of destiny converge man and woman in one embrace
To pave the path fate intended only their aching hearts can trace
