The reunion

Coloured lights flicker off
the big glitter ball
as you arrive at the dance
at the old school hall

Friends from your past,
Greet with a cheer
as you are the one,
they want to be near!

All of those faces, from days of old
Come into the warmth, and out of the cold
and the faces around you, don’t seem to have changed
You thought they’d forgot you
They all know your name

You talk with your chums,
remembering the time
when you were in French
Conversing your lines

And the girl you once fancied
is at the back of the room
Remembering the light
you gave in the gloom

You’re all drinking things
Not allowed in that time
as you reminisce with Bitter
or Vodka and Lime

Now she’s dancing wi’ Girlfriends
to a tune you both knew,
She’s 16 again
and you’re feeling Blue.

She walks across the hall
and calls out your name.
You raise a smile
and take part in her game.

And as she skips across sweetly
grabbing hold of your hand,
you both dance together
to the sound of the band
