Looking back at the life that I led,
I find certain regrets that are in my heart held,
The regrets of leaving behind all those that above my life I beheld.
I remember those lovely memories of laughs and capers I shared,
In all those friendships that can never be repaired,
When time and space separated us all to the point of no return,
When I turned taciturn.
Those once familiar faces,
Now seem but part of certain phases,
The life that we endured together,
Sharing a friendship which we hoped would stay forever.
All is not meant to be,
Just as this friendship wasn’t an everlasting ecstasy,
Today I light the fire,
To our friendship’s funeral pyre.
We have mobiles but no contact,
We have Facebook but no chats,
We broke beyond belief
The day our friendship stopped giving us relief.
We simply became a burden on one another,
The sooner forgotten the better.
Funny thing we say keep in touch
And when they call we say “bothering much?”
We ran after lives and careers,
For the betterment of our futures,
But an ounce away from death,
I still can’t get them out of my head.
