Columbia Road Market

Columbia Road Market

It was a Sunday in March
            the sky was overcast
but it wasn’t cold
            The market stalls
and the boutique shops
            were absolutely packed
with young couples
            out on a leisurely stroll

You bought earrings
            and some flowers
to decorate the flat
            I bought you a candle
to fill the flat with light
            when we ate together
It was an act of love
            and I hoped
that the flame
            would never die
