I watched you leave
You held me close
As you whispered your last goodbye.
You took my hand
And entwined with yours
Before I could speak
You kissed my cheek
And said you’d never forget
The day we met
And every little thing we’ve done
Under the starry night
In the pouring rain
Or the blazing sun
Every moment filled with laughter and endless fun.
Gullible and naïve
I hung onto every word you said
Till days passed and nights crawled by
When I finally realized I was living a lie.
You never belonged to me
I was nowhere near your heart
You’d given it away a long time back
And she was the one you truly loved all this time
I stifled a sob and cut the phone
I knew you could never be mine.
I often wonder if you ever think about me
Sit back and reminisce with a sigh
I haven’t been able to forget you completely
no matter how hard I try
One day, I’d wish you were there to catch me
When I stumble and fall
Someday, I’d muster up the courage
To set aside my ego
And give you a call. .
