Few Steps Behind
Your slipping away, I thought you would one day
But didn’t think the day would come so soon
If you jog through the memories in your mind,
You’d see, I was just a few steps behind.
Seems like time flew and we didn’t realise
That we should have held on tight,
Our love now appears like a fruit without its rind
Guess I was late, a few steps behind.
Now this distance seems so endless
We cant bridge it, try as much as we may,
Loose leaves of a book, without a bind
I see someone else waiting, a few steps behind.
Shakes me to the core of my being, seeing where we are
What started so glorious, ending so miserable.
While everything was falling to pieces, I was blind
Now I’m left, a few steps behind.
The air is filled with animosity,
Two strangers in the dark,
As I see the papers you have signed
I think love left us, a few steps behind!!!
