This love came with an expiry date,
all in this process of us, I lost track of time.
It looked as though ours would be
one of those cringe-worthy love
stories that would make too many
Everything looked perfect,
you never left the room messy
for me to fret upon.
And I learned what kind of music,
you want to groove to when you’re happy!
There weren’t any arguments,
whether to watch a romcom or a sci-fi movie
And you never dared to say
that I cooked bad food.
You never forgot when not to annoy me
and I always made mistakes deliberately
to watch you get angry.
But when this expiry date neared,
we felt numb and unable to decipher
And that’s alright because it had to happen.
It’s not always necessary that
all stories have to have a happy ending.
But I promise you to make it worthy!
I promise I will follow things in your life,
but only if you promise me
that you’ll send me pictures
Of every dog you meet.
And the day I get a pop-up notification
of your achievements
I would come home and dance alone
on the favourite symphony of ours!
And I am sure you will be at my restaurant
At 5:00 AM and wait for someone
to open the shutter so that
you don’t miss any chance of its inauguration!
And when you are tired and 40,
call me if you are feeling lonely.
Maybe this time we can sit like two friends
And share what life has offered,
for I always promised you
to never leave your side!
