Thinking Of You.

I saw your lovely face and
    handed back the rose to you.
You took it with your lovely hand
    saying goodbye so nicely and true.

I stretched my eager hand
    shook your lovely one in mine,
Quite unwilling to let it go
    I said, "Take care ... have a journey fine",

I closed the door after saying
    Goodbye to the rest in the bus,
And my heart opened to begin praying
    To the Lord your safety I entrust.

I saw the bus move off
    Leaving smoke and dust behind,
It carried my dear Chooy Lin along,
But it left me thinking of her in mind.
