I wish I was like you

I wish I was like you

I wish I was like you,
For I want to sing again,
…. To have fun again,
…. To live again!
But in a small corner of my heart,
I know I can’t.
I’m too far away,
From where I can’t sway!
Believe me I wish I was like you,

Only if I get a chance to live my life again;
Which now everybody has begun to believe is a herculean task.
This is not a question to be asked,
Because persons once gone never come back.

 

Cheer up girl

The way you talked with me,
Nobody had so far.
The way you walked with me,
Nobody had so far.
The way you asked me,
Nobody had so far.
The way you promised me,
Nobody had so far.
The way you touched me,
Nobody had so far.
The way you hugged me,
Nobody had so far.
The way you kissed me,
Nobody had so far.
The way you left me,
Nobody had so far.

You know? My world shattered
The day you left me..
But my friends were there,
To hold me up.
I felt my life was finished.
They told me not yet, and,
It was your bad luck to leave me.

I tried to end my life.
They slapped me hard.
That’s the way my friends are.

They tried every possible effort
To light up my life…
And, I was trying to
Live my life in dark.

One day I took out a piece of paper and wrote:
The way I loved you;
I’m sure nobody will ever do so..

They saw me with a tiny paper in hand,
Asked me what that was!

I crumpled the paper,
Beneath my feet..
Murmured nobody will ever do so..
…. Nobody will ever do so..

I faked a smiled,
Cleared my throat;
Told them I want to move on.

They jumped with joy,
Hugged me so tight,
And, I realized

You were never with me,
As my friends were and are.
