The eagle soars up to the murky sky-
The winds whisper of times gone by.
The times which had you and me-
The times our hearts fluttered like a caged bird set free.
You gave me a mouthful of sky-
I gave you a fistful of life.
You brought me sunshine in the rains-
I gave you paper boats sailing down the waterlogged lanes.
We held hands as the swing soared high,
We watched silently as times passed by.
We exchanged letters, some secret glances too-
Happily unaware that our days together were numbered few.
We built a house of cards on shores of a silvery sea,
Our days were washed with colours of glee.
“Happily ever after” we thought-
But that was not to be.
A storm passed over our dreamy shore-
Blowing in sands of distrust into our hearts;
A love decayed through its core-
Nothing left to do, nothing left to say anymore.
My wrist cries crimson tears of pain-
Memories bringing in smiles gone pale.
Promises drowned themselves in the red reeking river-
An abrupt end to a tale meant to last forever....
