Oh beloved, how shall I stay without you gaze,
Oh beloved, how I used to look upon you with all my grace.
Oh beloved, have you gone clean of your ways,
Leaving behind the paths that brought us closer.
For sometime now, the fervor has bleakend,
I feel it inside, you don’t seem the same anymore.
How your laughter broke our tiredness,
Oh beloved, you still smile but your eyes don’t.
Time is a mischievous player,
It changes things we thought would never change,
Oh beloved, I still sit near your books,
Their pages have yellowed, their story didn’t.
