It was a rainy afternoon
Everything was gloomy yet green.
We were standing in a balcony,
Not talking to each other;
Silence seemed more rejuvenating
Than that breezy atmosphere.
Somebody had to break the ice;
Hence you asked if I'd be okay
If you fade away from my life!
I smiled. Not at you. Not at myself.
I smiled at that yellow flower
Which gets ignored by the sun everyday.
Would she be okay, if the sun
fades away from her world?
No, neither I’m that flower
Nor you are the sun.
And since its not the case, yes,
I’d be okay If you disappear.
For love comes without conditions,
It won't matter if you stay.
It won't matter if you go away.
But what matters the most is
What I'm left with once you're gone.
Maybe a broken heart? Too cliché?
Would I sink in an ocean of tears?
Too mainstream? isn't it?
Instead, how about I smile,
At that yellow little flower
Which sleeps in peace hoping
For the sun to rise again.
Let me smile at the possibility
Of that unreachable tomorrow.
Let me smile at the hope that I'll sleep
And we'll stand in this balcony In a gloomy afternoon;
Where you'd ask again, if I'd be okay.
