Gaining your acquaintance was a surprise
Nobody knew we would grow fond easily
So many days I watched you in secret
Wondering if you are the one for me.
I held back, scared and lost,
Convinced myself to be content
With the blinding smiles and mischievous moments.
Living a lie, you said, entertaining the world
You and I both, love, said I in mind.
To hold on to our dreams and passions,
Life’s authenticity long lost.
I wanted to get it back
By holding your hand for real.
But life as cruel as it is,
It pushed us together in work.
Just a job, just a few months
I said over and over to myself
They had us enjoy our time together
All the little red roses of lovers
“Don’t cherish it, Don’t want it”
My mantra that kept me sane.
Bit by bit I weakened and broke,
With every smile, every surprise.
The day of separation came but
Now I want to ask you
To hold me close and kiss me
What do I do? Heaven help me!
