Theme: Sorrow

Restless Nights

I don’t know when the dawn arrived silently,
The clock is striking 4-30 and I am still awake,
The night passed away in your thoughts,
Fond memories of the past creeping in my mind,
When I meant everything to you,
And now everything except me means to you,
In shadows of time I became so unimportant,
You seem to have forgotten all about me,
And yet I remember every word of thee,
Moments spent covertly at your home,
With passions effervescent in the foam,
Our warming up in the wooden fireplace,
With a sip of hot coffee to make the mood,
Your singing with the violin in the swing,
Our salsa with the Mozart’s symphony,
See, I remember every single thing.
Now it seems to me an alien world
Where all these happened between us.
As I can't relate that past with this present,
Where you don’t even look at me.
You are busy with sensex and money managing,
You don’t have time to spend with your love,
You have probably taken me for granted,
That no matter how you behave I won’t leave you.
The fact that I am spending sleepless nights
Doesn’t bother you anymore.
Money is all that matters to you.
It’s strange how money wins over me
And I am only left with restless nights.
