You know how it feels? To be cheated in love By someone so close, someone so dear Who’s there in each thought, in every breath of life So much trusted and looked up to – Share joys wholeheartedly And to weep on his shoulder when glum Cared so much for that it hurts me to see him hurt To proudly declare him as my sojourner to all To take pride in his achievements and – With love so immaculate and trust so deep To take in stride all his silly mistakes And to laugh it off when he chides To caress and pamper him and feel complete And to see such trust breakdown Crumble and vanish, yet with a faint hope That he will return someday, a changed man Fighting all that which says it will never happen And waiting for that miracle to hue my life again As I endeavor to dream Of our good times together – They prod me to live life with hope and faith That all will be well soon, very soon.
