You saw me grow,
You saw me when i was broke,
You foresaw my breakthrough,
You gave me food when i was hungry,
You gave me moods when i was mood less,
You filled me with your feelings,
I shared every piece of my dream with you,
I felt every bit of my life as if it was tied to you,
I enjoyed talking to you,
I enjoyed every moment we were together,
We would merry and cheers,
We would love and laugh,
We would care and dare each other,
We would play and pray,
We would wipe each others tears,
We would give each other a shoulder to cry on,
We would enjoy each others happiness,
We would laugh at each others silly mistakes,
We would embrace each others success,
We would talk about each other blissfully,
We would defend each other,
But, what happened to us?,
What happened to the love?
What happened to the cheers and jeers?
What happened to the care?
What happened to …….?
Now there is no love in the lover,
There is no us in the trust,
There is no happy in the happiness,
There is no joy in joyful,
There is no ours in yours, but there is over in lover,
I hate that I loved you.
Hope you won’t cry when you see me with someone else,
But you will smile and say its done,
Hope you won’t mind the goodbye,
Because I will have been swept,
Swept off my feet by the love.
The love of who will love me,
Hope you won’t curse me but bless me,
Hope the blissful talk about me, will still remain,
Remember, love will always remember.
But why did you invest so much in me?
If your were going to let me go?
Why did you take me for a fool?
What the heck were you doing with my precious time?
Why did you take me for granted?
The heart wants what it wants.
I wanted a lover not a friend,
Non the less, Love will remember.
