It's been so long. Seven years are gone.
You watched me grow up. Loving you.
And I used to say,
Ten times a day,
I love you.
Now, I'd rather let it pass.
And let silence prevail between us.
There were nights. And I'd be awake.
Waiting for you to be home.
Now, I'd rather you don't come
And hours we used to be on telephone...
I'd rather be alone.
Conversations never ended, they never really do...
And yet the ones we have now, I wish we never do.
Did I just grow up?
Or may be you loved a different me.
Not that I like who I am now
But it's little I can do about.
We go to a fancy dinner. Yet, when was the last time we laughed together?
Moments which seemed little, now just feel like forever.
Sitting here on my bed, I watch you,
Wear your coat and leave.
You are the only one I ever have. Would you come back?
But I say nothing. Sometimes silence is a comfort.
