Could it be that I was okay with playing around with maybe,

a possibility 
Facing a rejection from someone

whom I thought was the one

and only 
I know I said I’d be okay, but 

I don’t know how, I don’t know when
Though I’ve let go so openly,

I can’t fool what my heart is telling me

Do I just let it be?
Would it fade away with time?

Will time ever fix me?


Coffee Joint

I remember it perfectly, the way you rest your elbows on the table, the way you held your drink. I remember it perfectly, the booth where we sat, that little corner where you had rest your back. I remember it perfectly, the things you said, the way you smiled at me. I remember it perfectly, by looking at you, I knew how much you meant to me. I remembered it perfectly how the look on your face implied you had no clue, you make me fall in everything you do.

After our little stroll

We sat on a bench nearby

And then talked for a little while


Winter’s breeze passed us by

I knew the time was running out

My feelings I have to say out loud


All the things I meant to say

I poured them out

All along your way


You held me in your embrace

And a little longer

I wish we’ve stayed


It was too much to think about

I know that full well

I left you with no words to say


Yes, I will give you time

I will wait till you need

But what should I make of us?


There was this moment

I realized it was you,

it’s you I want to be with

it’s you I saw my life with.


It was so perfect as I see

a future with you and me.

Growing old with you

like it was always meant to be.


These are all what-could-be’s

and just a bunch of maybe’s

I’ve also thought of what-if-not’s,

if we ever draw the line in friendship.


If we aren’t meant to be — and

only as friends we’ll ever be

I know I’ll be okay, because

God has a plan for me.
