The day when you promised me
Strangely the day when you lied,
feeling rejected, dejected
for the first time unstoppably I cried.

Sad thought!
Was it a mistake?
Was it a crime to seek lively pleasure?
For it was not by earthly measure,
but it was only you with whom
spiritually I was caught.

That halcyon day
when I felt like going to church to pray,
will never ever come again;
might be the reason of lasting pain.

Nobody comes, nobody goes,
every passing vehicular sound reminds me
of my wounded sorrows.
I go rushing to see
whether you've come. 
Alas!
Why did you promise me?

Comment Who promised u....Godot?????????????......lovely composition indeed.one can surely endure the pain of thousand broken promise having been solaced with this kind of a tenderly aesthetic, miserably pathetic, and spiritually profound poem.......really something" what oft was thought/but never so well expressed"
