I sit back and retrospect today,

What is the thing that stayed?

Even on the days you didn’t,

And on the days I couldn’t.


It was love all this while,

Stayed in bits and pieces,

Even on the days of fights,

It was lurking in the moments.


I sit back and wonder today,

What is the feeling that has lead me here?

Even after the dark days

and melancholy nights.


It was love all this while,

Even on the days I cried

and on the days you lied.

But love made me survive

It was lurking,

Somewhere in the moments.
