When She’s Not Around

I met her in college,
knew she'll be the one.
she was the dearest friend I had,
every moment spent with her was fun.
now, when she's not around,
I remember every moment,
I cherish all the days gone,
the only thing I hate now,
is this feeling of being alone.
the college lanes, we walked holding hands,
and the labs we shared,
now when she's not around, I see,
the lane is there and the lab too,
but missing is the couple paired.
the chocolates, the ice creams we ate and the roses we exchanged.
the unending secrets we kept hidden from the world, as, it was only love that we cared.
now, when she's not around,
the secrets are gone and the roses are dire dead,
with the one-sided love feeling left all over,
I recall the past instead of looking ahead.

the rides on the bike we had,
the rains we danced,
the furtive late night conversations on phone,
now has become a thing of past.
she's forgotten the days I held her face in my hands,
I promised her I’ll be like this till my life ends.
now, when she's not around,
she's forgotten the love I had for her,
the only thing she remembers now is...that “I was just a friend”.
I miss the lovely eyes she had and miss her glowing face.
now, when she's not around,
the void of her absence, is the only thing I brace.
