Special Something Forever....


It’s not your fault that you had to go away,
You never promised you will be here forever.
I look back at the days gone by,
Smiling as the glimpses of past cross my mind


I stare at the table,
Sitting on it is the broken brown cup,
Reminding me of our pointless fights,
Our silly talks about kites and ego rights.

I flip through my diary,
A paper slips on to the floor.
I stare it hard till it gets wet with my tears,
It’s a half done sketch of you my dear.

Your broken red bangle
Safely hidden in the shelf,
It is all that I ever stole,
A remembrance now, for my troubled soul.

You had told me, you had nothing to offer,
I knew you would never be mine.
You had to go away,
And now you are gone.

Why? What if? Why not?
Some questions have no answers.
Your absence does hurt, but I regret nothing,
You are forever my special something.
