There are moments in my life that I would love to experience again.
I’ve loved the time we spent together.
Oh, those flavours of love we experienced!
I love the little smiles we shared
And how you made me laugh.
Do you still remember how we used rulers to control our laughter?
Yes, it is such moments I remember.
The moments we spent observing those two cute friends,
The time we spent escorting her just to know where she lives.
You were more into reading while I was into calculation
But our worlds fit beautifully together.
You’re the closest to a soulmate I’ve ever had.
As a friend once told me,
“No treasure compares to the love of a wonderful friend.”
You were the wonderful friend.
You were always there when I needed you,
We were each others shadow.
But lately, you don’t seem to remember I exist.
I keep watching how you somehow comfortably stay away.
Do you still think of me as I do of you?
I’ve been searching for you.
I’ve always thought of relationships as two-sided,
We must each make the effort to contact the other.
Oh, but how beautiful it really is
Having someone who receives your “Hello”, like a heavenly sent blessing!
Distance is never supposed to kill love.
As long as your address remains unchanged,
There will always be a love letter with the message, “Hello”, at your doorstep.
