Meeting you was a date with fate
I thought I have found a soulmate.
Your friendship was my cocoon
when loneliness broke my boon.
I will never forget our first hangout,
the aura of your love cleared my doubt.
Gentle breeze caressed us at twilight
till we were woken by sunlight…
Your smiles sparkled like the stars,
I soon forgot all my scary scars.
Your heartbeat was loud and clear,
lyrics of love crept into my left ear.
I stopped searching for love,
for in you, I found a darling dove.
I had plans to put a ring on it
until a war broke out in my spirit.
I was ready to forever live with you,
my love for you was pure and true.
But yours were full of dark clouds,
and your lies were loud and proud.
Though you broke my heart
and our souls had to grow apart,
Since I was not sad when I met you;
I will be very happy to miss you!
