I have been busy doing things
Time has been a tyrant from the beginning.
Too busy to pen the poem inside me as it died,
Too busy to notice my friend by my side.
Never saw the rays of hope in the sunrise,
Nor that of love in the sunset.
Missed the kiss as i caught the bus,
Forgot the gift of the smile as I got caught in the rush.
I danced too hard to listen to the music,
I heard the song, just don't remember it.
Maybe I have been sleepwalking through life
Even though its been strife after strife...
Trying too hard, its been quite a while,
I have to step back, let go and just smile.
