You Said

You said.

You said in that rainy morn,

Just after the darkened dawn,

That you wilt carry mine pain,

During times of sorrow,

When we know not about morrow


You said on that dewy grass,

When the drops from the foliage fell at us,

That thy heart was mine,

And mine was thine
You said at the dingy mall,

That thou shalt stand tall,

During times of tears,

And during moments of fears


You said on our leafy bed,

That thou shalt stand till I was dead

Then why hast thou forgot thine words,

Left me to fight with the weary world?

Why hast thou pierced mine heart,

And left me with none but hurt?

Why hast thou laughed at my cry,

Mocked at mine try?

Where is what you said?

-Here I am dead and laid-
