Drift away..

Like two leaves on a branch
When autumn falls
Let's drift away

When the soul is pure
And there are worries no more
Let's drift away

Above the skies so blue
When you love me true
Let's drift away

Where the winds are slight
And we feel so light
Let's drift away

When the promise you make
Fails ever to break
Let's drift away

When you can rest with me
In no hurry to leave
Let's drift away

Waiting for you

I hear some footsteps; I think it's you,
Finally arrived to bring a cheer to my grey life

I hear a voice; I think it's you,
Sweet as melody, fresh as dew...
You've come at last, haven't you... to cure my blues

I feel a touch; I think it's you,
Soft as velvet, your skin seems so new...
There is hope, isn't there,
Dreams do come true

I see a light, far in the distance,
You're walking towards it
You slowly go out of sight

I call out to you, with tears in my eyes
You give no answer, but just pass by

You came not to stay...
Now I know why

I say a prayer & close my eyes,
With a hope that I see you when I embark upon my next journey

...I will be waiting for you

Now that you’re gone

Now that you’re gone, I think back..
I realize how wrong I must have been to leave You all alone,

How much sorrow, how much pain, how much loneliness I must have brought upon You..
the one I truly loved.. my own

There is no justification for what I did but I seem to know the reason now

So bereft of love was I, that at the slightest sighting,
I flew.. with all my might

All of it felt like a dream, happy and beautiful,
I was lost in a new world, a world full of love and all things good

I cared little of what I had left behind,
I thought seldom of how You must truly feel my loss

I was gloating in my dream, feeling complete at last
I got so much love and gave so much love.. sometimes more than desired

I lost myself so many times, without realizing my own loss

Dreams are but dreams, they come to an end.

Now that I awake from this long slumber, I realize how trapped I am still.
I wish I could turn back times and stay with You some more time,

Sharing the same laughter, cracking the same jokes,

Enjoying the same food..

I wish I had lived a little longer with You..

Today, I face a similar loss.. and try to imagine how You must have felt when I left You.. all alone

It makes me so sad and weary

I curse every speck of me that was ever angry with You,

I repent every moment that I spent fighting with You.

I must’ve been crazy for doing all that

For You loved me truly

I know now..

That all You said was to save me from this trap I lie in today

You tried to caution me,

I paid no heed

And here I am today, trapped in my very dream

You must’ve shed some tears,

You must’ve missed a friend,

It must have been all lonely..

I was so wrong and selfish.

But in the end, I paid.

Coz’ I did forget to mention

That in the dream I lay,

I fell many a times,

and have a scar or two, good to last a lifetime.

All I’d like to say today,

I am sorry, please forgive me..
