Sitting on the platform, waiting for my train,
I look at the unknown faces in vain,
Trying to find that person, that face,,
That gifted me smiles and was reason for my pain.
Those faces that I can’t recall,
It’s a fogged memory a distant call,
As if from another life, another age,
Too surreal to be reality at all.
Running in the dark, I was chasing a light,
Not knowing the way amidst the trees of great height,
I collided with someone, and fell on the ground,
The light was gone but there were couple of faces in sight.
It felt that I’ve known them for years,
Their laughter, their talk, was so sweet to hear,
But a part of me feared the unknown,
I ran away from them, although I wanted them to be near.
That moment of indecision is all I regret,
As the time passes, their faces I forget,
Now I’m left with only a painful emptiness,
I may have changed the past, if a second chance I could get.
Looking forward to meet them at another place,
Asking the God to fulfill my wish and brighten my days,
As for now, another encounter I pray,
As I search for that forgotten face.
