Midnight Dreams

long ago it happened so
love has tested another couple to either give them joy or sorrow
there were two friends who were quite close
everyone had a lover except them, so a game they chose

they decided they would be each others lovers
for 30 days it would be and spend some happy hours
during the first 10 days they went to some movies and beach
ample amount of time was spent with each

the next 5 days they went to a park and a circus
he has given her a cute rose a pink lotus
the following 5 days was when they went to a fortune teller
she told them to open their hearts soon and a tear came from her

in next two days they went to a hill to see a meteor fall
she mumbled something and before he asked her from below there was a call
later 4 days was when they went on a ride
she kissed him accidently; she felt so shy she wanted to hide


after 3 days on the on the eve of the last day, again
they met et the place where they thought of the game
she asked him some juice as she felt thirsty
he goes but does not return even after 10: 30

a stranger cames by comes by and passes a tragic news
a drunken driver has run over himand she ran their with hues
at the hospital they gave her a juice and a letter
they also told her that his condition was no better

in the letter the boy tells how much he loves her
before the game ends he asks her to be his true lover
she cries and tell him 'this is what i always prayed'
to think about a life without him she has never dared

the clock struck 12 at night and it stopped beating
it was not the only thing to stop as he stopped breathing
