A calm evening it was,
He waited for her patiently.
Hiding his gift inside a bag,
He bought for her recently.
They met at a coffee shop,
A little late than the decided time.
He wasn’t angry or mad at her,
Making him wait wasn’t any crime.
She hugged him and apologized,
For being rather unusually late.
“Hey, it’s ok. No problem,” said he,
He didn’t want to ruin his date.
Coffees ordered and arrived,
She kept talking and talking.
Lost in her eyes and deaf to her words,
He kept falling and falling.
Out of nowhere, he extended his hands,
With his tightly wrapped present.
She took it from him gently,
And opened it with much content.
“Oh my god!” she jumped and exclaimed,
Spilling her coffee all over her dress.
Ran towards the washroom instantly,
To clean up the lovely mess.
Everybody stared at him,
Like he did something bad.
Little did they know,
How much he was glad.
She returned after a while,
All cleaned up and smiling.
Hugged him tightly and thanked him,
He felt like he was a royal king.
“I will never forget this gift.”, she said,
With tears welled up in her eyes.
“You mean these gifts?”, picking up the books,
He asked her in a tone of surprise.
She didn’t answer but was busy,
Scraping her dress off of coffee stain.
Grabbed the books from his hands,
She always dreamt of reading again.
“I am sorry. For the coffee stain, dear.”
He regretted his act of surprising her.
“No.”, she said blushing, pointing to the stain,
“This is the best unforgettable gift ever.”
