I fell in love with you but you didn’t
So that was an opportunity we both lost.
You fell in love with someone,
I got hurt and bruised.
Eventually I moved on and so did you,
But you broke that person’s heart because you found someone new.
Soon after your new love moved on without you
And we lost touch,
I didn’t dare ask how you have been doing
For fear you might think I’m still hoping for so much.
Our paths once crossed but it seems it will never again
You and I, we try to avoid each other it seems.
Our story ends here
Or it may be a to be continued when we’re different people in a different life.
I’m done wishing, I need to act.
Got to get myself back on track.
Got to stand up and start somewhere
Or else I’ll be stuck, I’ll be going nowhere.
If not now then I may not do it ever
Got to get a move on and never say never.
It’ll be hard, and that’s for sure
But I know what I must do, I must endure.
I’m done wishing and here’s my first act
To get myself back on track.
The world is not as cruel as they made you believe
People are not as selfish as they seem
And it’s never too late to start over
“Good morning”, says the sun
Bright and early it appears.
Beyond the horizon, out at sea
Oh! The day looks clear.
Silence, as this side of the world wakes
Silence, the only thing I hear.
I start my day with a view like this.
PS. I took the above picture from my office’s roof deck.
September is here again
Remember when it came, back then?
Forever, it seems since it last visited
Over, it will be although I hope not soon enough
October and the other Ber months can wait for a while
August ended when it felt like it just started
Another end, another beginning
Life’s cycle as they say
I look back and I wonder what I’ve done with my time
Was I fruitful in August at all?
When I haven’t started, they doubted me
Which made me doubt myself too
But as I started, those who doubted faded slowly
So I did what I had to do
Step by step, slowly with each inch
I worked hard despite getting tired along the way
Almost losing sight of the goal, so myself I had to pinch
I questioned myself but carried on anyway
And now, here I am where they say I could never be
I’m nearly there despite the bruises and scars you see
The road takes me back to where I once was
But I notice slight changes
Things that used to be there, gone
Things that weren’t, appear
And as I walked further I got nearer
To where I once was
But now, I am different
The mirror told no lie
I needed to start, I needed to try
I’ve been on this road before and I know I can make it
Like others before me who stood up rather than stay and sit
A goal has been set and my mind too
Get up lazy bones, yes I’m talking to you
Start the workout no matter how much you have to bend
You’ll thank yourself later when you get to the end
