And what if I say that I love you
Will u love me too?
What if I say u belong to me
And me only
Will u run back to me from where ever you are?
And be mine always?
Smile that crooked smile and
Give that hug I have always longed for…
Perhaps no…Perhaps never
Because you will never know,
Never feel the same way I do
Perhaps that’s the way it’s meant to be
Two different paths that are never meant to cross
And I keep telling myself, convincing myself everyday
That’s this is what is best for me
Because what I think he is, dream he would be like
Might just b a reality in my dreams
That it is better this way
And everyday I promise to myself
To let it go
And begin afresh
But the moment I see you
I feel the same way I felt the first time I saw u..!!
