Life has changed so much for you and for me,
New horizons beckoned you and I stay submerged in mine,
We grew poles apart, more than ever we realised,
So near, yet so far, wish we never grew apart.
I kept trying my best to keep our love intact,
But how do one show the fondness of the heart,
When everything I did, irked you beyond the limit,
For all what I did seemed to be beyond reasoning.
You scare me now, you; who once was my own,
Frightened to utter anything lest it instigate you,
Love needn’t fear, so lifeless love has become,
Your former self remaining inside me like a etched memory.
Caring is a simple word, but is a huge commitment,
Once it stops the very existence comes to a halt,
Recognise precious people and precious moments,
When it still exists in your life, for once gone, it’s forever gone.
