Surfing idly, I chanced to find your face,
The smile, well-known, the chin, the eyes -
Features which fascinated fifty years ago.
I ponder on your portrait, staring, I will it to react;
Come alive, speak! at least blink and show
That you remember. Those vivid days,
Racing to all events in town,
The latest films, jazz bands and plays,
A meaty menu for our delight.
Step out of your home-page and talk again,
Tell me you recall the good times,
Our togetherness, our plans.
Dare to travel beyond the safety zone
Of your self-created niche and say,
Why did it end?
