Words Left Unsaid.............

Info


I see you standing there

Like a scared little mare

Most probably lost

With the expression of having seen a ghost


I cant believe my eyes

Am I being decieved by the ice?

Ice of my past, that now lurks

In this cold wintry dawn, with a smirk


I need to move my muscles

To not get into another tussle

No, I guess you'd rather say a "hi", plain

But one filled with so much pain


But suddenly you turned around

Your eyes, with surprise mound

A look filled with so much pain

Why do you try to hide it in vain?


Standing there in the deserted street

After a long time, again we meet

"Hi,hello" , these niceties are beyond us

Maybe time has made our egos less


That day too, we had stood like this

You,in your cocoon of bliss

I, about to break your heart

And Destiny  as a villain, fulfilling its part


I told you I needed space

That I wanted so badly to win this race

Race of life, to take the responsibility

To not make Dad's demise a liability


My family, I have lived for them since

Never once trying to cross that fence

That kept us apart

Confining the pain to my heart


Your eyes filled with tears

That look, that day, still on my fears

Afraid to say 'I love you'


That I may lose sight of my family for you


Time has flown

And I became  a clown

Never once laughing

Trying to forget,always failing


And yet here we stand

Wishing desperately to have a magic wand

To turn back time

To stop the old bell's chime


You walk towards me silent

The look on your face, kind

You say," hey, How have you been?"

Never once reminding that I had been mean


Staring into your bright eyes

I realize that it is slowly melting, that ice

Filled with remorse and regret, my eyes stand low

And you say, "It's okay, I know"


They say," time and tide waits for none"

But it has finally waited for one

And here she stands

My second chance.........................
