The Man Besides You

I fall in love to the man besides you
Could it be easier if it’s not you?
How your eyes looking at him and show that rare smile
My thought’s wandering and secretly drowned

I don’t want to cause pain
Only because our feeling is same
But the one who loses to gain
doesn’t need sympathy game

I fall in love to the man besides you
Could it be easier if I tell no lie?
Thought it is the man besides you
I believe my love is special too

I fall in love to the man besides you
Could it be easier if I don’t care?
How I turn on my head when you hold his arm
My heart’s longing and stuck nowhere

I don’t want to make trouble
My dream is to have a simple man
But the rain suddenly rumbles
Can’t help the love has grown

I fall in love to the man besides you
Could it be easier if I am cruel?
If only it is not the man besides you
You would not cry in the night just like I do

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
