I Remember

I’ve been watching you
From the little town street
Since the day you left first,
Leaving a small town,
Never to retreat.

I remember
All our high school days
When your mornings began with me
’til we got along up there
Building castles in the evening,
Never to retreat.

November evening
The air was cold and
There you go
With the perfect smile
As we ran
Leaving footprints in my backyard
with snow flakes falling, the town was asleep
We sat along with our friends,
Searching for glitters in the sky.

I walk up to the main door
Hoping for your return
Only to find myself
Left alone once again.
I remember you the way I should.
I remember you.
You were here.

I remember
We were growing up leaving
marks on the river of time.
“Nothing counts forever”
That’s all you said.

Maybe, this countryside felt too small
For your dreams so high
You left the small town
Leaving footprints in my backyard
with snow flakes falling, the town was asleep
You left all alone

for the glitters in the sky.

I walk up to the main door
Hoping for your return
Only to find myself
Left alone once again.
I remember you the way I should.
I remember you.
You were here.

The fall doesn’t feel the way it should
Our town doesn’t seem the way it should
Your love doesn’t mark the onset of summer the way it should
But
I remember you
I remember you the way I should.

I walk up to the main door
Hoping for your return
Only to find myself
Left alone once again.
I remember you the way I should.
I remember you.
You were here.

I’ve been watching you
From the little town street
Since the day you left.
