An Old Love Song

Years after you’ve settled down to a lustreless routine, you suddenly found out that somebody cried on your wedding night. How would you feel if not even in your wildest dreams could you imagine that this old friend had been secretly admiring you? What if decades later, when all your youthful fervour has burned out and you feel your life amounting to a pile of ash, you discover a piece of work – a touching song, a poem, a story dedicated to or inspired by you? You are shocked beyond words. Your heart had not beaten so fast for a long time.

What if this person is still contactable? Would you call him/her to talk about the good old days and then spend sleepless nights wondering how things might have turned out if you had known?
