A few years back when we met
I was the happiest lady to have ever lived
You were the perfect gentleman in my books
I got so enchanted by your looks
And then I said to myself “I’m never looking back”
Along the line, I shut my eyes
To every other thing in the world
You became the only person I chose to see
And your sweet baritone voice was the only lovely sound I heard
I could deny all truths
Just to listen to your lies
That was because you were the only one I chose to believe
I don’t know who or what changed
And I can’t believe time acted so fast
But I’ve come to realize how deceptive beauty can be
I can’t imagine I’m at the loosing ends again
I thought your words were assuring enough
And your love was never going to fade
Now, I realize I was only counting stars and chasing rainbows.
I received a note…
I don’t know whom it came from
All that was written on it read “From the east side of town”
Cupid hasn’t shot anyone for me there
…Or maybe I’m not aware of that yet
I opened it with glee
And found a rose seed
There was nothing more I could do
Nothing else to trace the recipient with
…So I made a decision
And put the seed in the ground
It started pushing through the soil beautifully
But I still didn’t know whom it had come from
Maybe love found a new way to come say “hi”
And with the rose, make me smile
…Every now and then, I hope for the one who sent me a rose flower in this form to show his face
But each day passes by and all I see is a growing red rose which came from the East side of town.
Tears roll down my eyes when I see our picture hanging on the wall
What ever happened to “Us”?
I never wanted it to be this way
But we never have a conversation without fights
Make-up times are even the worst…
Either someone calls your phone and you have to walk away
Or I get an urgent text I’d have to reply
And then the flames start again…
It isn’t that easy looking back at all the things we did together
And now I sit back in the sofa all alone hoping to hear a knock on the door…
I always imagine you standing behind the door with cakes and sweets in your hand saying “It’s weekend again, baby”
How I wish I could erase those memories now
But all I see now is just our smiling picture on the wall
Face-to-face, we always sat in public
And caught the attention of others with our kisses…
Where’s the man who bumped into me and smiled?
Why is it so hard to believe you’re gone so fast?
And why can’t you just make that call to say “I’m sorry”
I’d always take you back
Because that force inside of me is stronger than the ocean waves…
I’d love to hear from you
If you’re indeed not mad at me
I still love you and will always do
…And oh, if I ever did something I’m not even aware of, I’m sorry.
I’m truly sorry…and I could say that a hundred and one times for your sake
Just so you come back home.
Because, I really miss “Us”.
