I thought it was for Forever

by Shreya   Mar 23, 2017


I was walking all alone,
But in the faintest glimmer,
Came two angels, down through the doors of heaven;
And in through the doors of my heart.
We talked and we laughed,
And we cried together.

But,
Fate had storms for us;
Huge storms which took away an angel of mine.
No, I couldn't save her;
I didn't try to.
It was my fault...our fault we didn't try to save the part which made us complete.

We let the storms of misunderstanding destroy our magical unity;
A best friend that they took away from us,
A best friend whom we miss so dearly,
A best friend our hearts ache for.

I'm sorry dear friend,
For being a devil instead of the angel I should have been.
And I'm sorry dear friend,
For being angry with you, when all along you were right,
While I was wrong.

I know it's hard to forget the tough times I've put you through,
But I'll always pray,
To the heavens which sent you once to me,
To send you back to me.
Because my life is incomplete without you
And my forever empty without you.

I thought it was for forever,
I wish it was.
I can only hope,
But I thought it was for forever.

    of it in good health is very important and the root of this good relationship
    is understanding. A heartfelt write...touching..
