In solitude, restlessly lies a soul,
In remembrance of a dear one.
So close, once, and yet so far,
And now lonely, left with none.
Ever so unhappy, unyielding,
Trying in vain, to comprehend.
What life had in store, battling,
With a smile of acceptance.
Dreamy by the day, sleepless by night,
Lonely in a crowd, friendless with comrades.
Lost in transition between acceptance & denial,
Disillusioned, in love, in a reluctant surrender.
Sweetened thoughts, soured memories,
Confounded paths, a future so hazy.
What could have been, what is to be,
The differences, ripping off the heart within.
A lot of lessons, did the soul learn,
Yet could not fend off the separation.
A regret, a grief it carries heavily,
The essence of love, it had to realize.
Ever so moving, forth and back,
And yet, caught within timelessness.
Flying back to moments, haunted by,
In vain trying to hide from love within.
That soul will find another mate,
Another sweet little loving friend.
Yet that void would remain,
A special place within, none could take.
