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.
