BELOVED STRANGERS

It's a confusing world says I

Years ago, you were once my friend

There was always a joy when you saw me

Twas the same for me too

We used to talk 'til the morning

We were inseparable

I could have sworn the same blood flowed in our veins

You were a friend someone I could lean on

Someone who always advised me and looked after my heart

With you I could never look lost in a crowd

The moment had come we got separated by time, environment and distance

I got your number tried to reach out to you

You were never there

Voice mails left delivered

Messages unread

Calls Forwarded

It's unreal how the world is changing everyday

I never knew it could change us

It hurts knowing that you've moved on without me

Not that I'm unhappy about your success

Having been once the closest to your heart, it's quite the contrary

I just wish I could be part of it all too

I wish we could have journeyed this road of life together

I offering my shoulder for you to lean on

Cleaning your tears when you cry

Picking you up when you fall, knowing you'd do the same for me

I just have to move on, Cause you've already moved away

I was once the first thing on your mind,

Now I'm not even on your mind

My name doesn't ring a bell

My face is among the countless stars you've forgotten

Like the once you saw up in the sky when you were 3 years old

I know there's no single emotion left for me

We are now strangers

But I know we'll be alright

I'll keep holding on to the best of us

But you've left all that in the past

Love held in hands,
Opens eyes to  hope in the skies;
Now I see light.

The moon witness' us,
At the blouse of tensed sunset,
Love, the name we bare.

And crazy they went
Vows and promises they put on head
14/2 marks their death

Gently receding
Beneath the horizon 
Fom whence she did rise

In the hallow of your beauty my heart dwelled, I sight the beams, i smell the charms of your overwhelming perfume, the power of my enduring heart fails me; then I plight to love you forever!

Under the orange ray of dusk,

The sun is a mediator of two hands
Joined as one in love.

I just wish love can see me through the moonlight, set up a light for me in the darkness and guide me till am lost no more..
