Since I Saw You



Since I saw you, the very first time,

I wished, if I could make you mine,

I called you up, asking what to do,

And heard what you said, holding a glass of wine.


You told me that I can never get you,

You love someone, and I’ll never get through,

And I said, no matter what you deem,

I can’t stop me, from thinking of you.


So you said c’mon, let’s play a game,

And I was ready to put everything on stake,

I yearned to win you, to win this game,

So, I put on gamble, everything I’ve had.


Now, I realize, why you played that game,

You wished, If I stopped thinking of your name,

But when you won, you forgot something,

That We’ve got a Hope, and it always remains.


Value of that Moment

Time keeps on slipping off our hands, as if we are trying to hold the sand.


As moments pass, as time moves, we just feel that nothing is changing. But when we look behind after a while, we envisage how dramatically things have changed.


Some changes are those for which we always yearned, the rest are the ones we begrudged.


Whenever I look around today and anticipate tomorrow, I am unconsciously reminiscent of yesterday. I don’t want to do that. But it doesn’t mean that its wrong being reminiscent and nostalgic. This is what makes us human, the emotions and the sense of flowing with them.


I always think about the moment that I didn’t live as I wanted. I think of the choices that I didn’t make as I wished. I recollect the memories where I did something knowing I shouldn’t do it.


And then I think about the value of that moment. The moment which I lost. How precious that moment was, which I can’t bring back, the things that I can’t change.


But If that moment hadn’t been that way, I wouldn’t be what I am. Its my past due to which my present is. And so there is no moment which I didn’t live my way. We always know in our heart, that everything we embrace, is our choice. We choose it to be that way.


And so, if that moment was valuable, this moment is priceless. It is now, when we can follow our heart and then someday reminisce, the value of that moment.
