Reverse swing - 2

He was enamored at first sight, and once they started a 'live-in' relationship a year later, everything seemed smooth. They shared a rather tempestuous relationship over the years, until he finally walked out on her 15 years after they first met.
He fell in love with someone else, while she kept waiting for him, hoping that he just might change his mind and come back to her. But then he had moved on, and had made peace with himself. She was a thing of the past. All said and done, things would never be the same between them again.
Whenever he returned, he'd drop by to see her and make sure she was doing ok - just for old time's sakes. Her hopes rose everytime he returned - the prodigal he was - but she was too timid to bring up the past.
On a muggy night late one August, as BA0138 lifted off the runway, he looked back at the city he loved once upon a time, shed a tear for her and a silent prayer escaped his lips...


PS: Changed the caption to Reverse Swing, based on a suggestion from Vinayak! Acc. to him it was a more appropriate caption for these posts!
