Parking lot is packed as usual,
And I still remember when it was like this last time, you had asked if flights tonight are free!!
I smiled –
Like I’ve said a million times,
9 out of 10 times that I smile, you are the reason behind it!

And the vast expanse of the sky is densely studded with the stars as if decorated at the function hall or painted by an experienced artist to present it for the Valentine’s Day.
