As a child, while I walked this path so many times
I never did think that one day life would be so different
that one day I would fall in love with this sunset
Today as I watch the winding road
meander into the shimmering woods
I remember those long lost days of childhood bliss
Those casual chilly evening walks
those soft soothing small talks
the regular bursts of infectious laughter
those ever stretching smiles of unbounded joy
And when, love, it took its first flight
soaring across the infinite sky
A hundred wishes were born together
painted with one never-dying belief
that love would endure every pain.
But soon, love was lost to love’s demand
crushed and trampled,it hoped for revival,
Aching and crying, the heart, it bled.
The gift that was, is now no more.
And now I remember the pain
I rememeber our silent walk in the rain.
