A 2nd chance at love
And it was one day i woke up..
to witness how the sunshine dances upon ur skin..
gold melting into gold..
yet you still manage to glisten more than ever...
everyday day...every morning...
and on second thoughts..its sunday..
and maybe i can get u a cup of coffe....
i know it wud taste bad..
but i wud try to pour a lil love..
just in case if it doesn't appeal to ur taste
it might appeal to ur heart...
silly thought ain; t it..
or maybe i can kiss u gently..
and take u in my arms..
and when u mumble in sleep..
i wud tell u stay like that forever...
and i don; t wanna miss a thing
not even a single breath...
of u and me being us...
and lie down with you...till the end of time..
and then..as i watch u wandering in ur forest of dreams...
i tend to get lost in mine...
with eyes wide open.. i can see..we managed to sever..
shud have been brutal for you too...
i can sense that when u love me like crazy today...
and yes i was drowned in my own insanity...
unwilling to accept...
ignorance at its best...
that you cud never understand..
and i cud never stand...
to what you felt and thought..
to what my ego won't thaw...
and the doom struck its drums..
loud and relentless..
and suddenly the rain never seemed to stop..
the vision jammed and accustomed to witness grey, , ,
hues died like some old forgotten memory..
crossroads...that could never collide..
and we stood miles apart....
and suddenly..ur moan..shakes my momentary lapse of reason..
just to come back again...to you..again..
and as i touch your hair...and slide them away from your face
ur dimples on the side of cheeks give me a peep...
and i get to know...its me ur dreaming of...
like i dream of u every night...
even when i'm holding u tight...
and m thankful to god...
for i have been blessed...
with you, , with ur love...with a second chance...
