In my heart Oh! dear,
You and me are near,
You say not but I hear,
We may talk but with fear,
You were once my peer,
Your every word I bear,
Together in joyful tears,
Alone in painful shears,
I wanted to know you more,
Ready to uncover the masks I wore,
Showed you signs you didn’t reply,
Reminded you of times you made me cry,
Silently waiting for a chance to speak,
Forcefully making a smiling streak,
Losing my patience but being calm,
Heart going cold, but keeping it warm,
I still remember those moments of joy,
When we laughed at matters ignoring ‘where’ and ‘why’.
I know your every like and choice,
I know when you’re mad and when you’re nice,
I know exactly your ‘priceless’ price,
I even know your softest slice,
You may not speak your heart out loud,
You may not find what I have found.
With your strand of charm,
Holding your strong arm,
You bring me out,
From the echoes of shout.
Maybe I was wrong,
or expected too long,
Maybe I was tricked,
To have you picked,
Even knowing you as the only one,
Today ‘YOU’ ARE STILL ‘SOMEONE’…..!!!
