I always thought you saw in me
What others failed to see
They tried to mould me
According to their needs!
I always believed you believe in me
When others tried to doubt my abilities
They never failed to give advice or criticized
To make me what they wanted to be!
I always knew you know the word ‘love’
When others just claimed,they loved me
But ‘love’! it was not,
It was only their need!
I always hoped you will stay with me
When all dear ones were leaving
No one promised to stay
And I let them walk away!
I always… anyway,
Leave it what I always thought, believed, knew or hoped
All I had and have is just my heart
What hurts is, it is not enough…
