I Met You One Day

I met you one day
You smiled, spoke softly
Charmed me with your voice,
Your eyes looking into me
That special smile,
I smiled back...
My eyes searching
Searching for that special spark
That special bond that tied you to me

I thought I caught a glimpse
Of warmth, tenderness
That itself was enough
For me to open my heart

I shared my life, my circumstances
My feelings, my pain
Hoping, longing that
You would be my friend,
Hoping you would stand by my side

But you vanished,
Leaving me bewildered
I cried, my heart ached
Is this all that life is about?
Don't people matter?
Don't I matter?
Is everything sacrificed,
at the altar of personal gain?

You realized the truth
It was too much of an effort
You vanished
Leaving me with dried tears

It's fine, I've got used to it now
Its just a matter of time
I've grown stronger,
My smile deeper
I've survived through it all
And now I don't need you anymore.
