All Begins and Ends in You

when once in life someone came
to fill out every inch of you
… then walked away
…leaving every dream behind

was it pain?
or living without life…

in everything we are here for,
there are reasons
…for every reason worth it all
…worth living for in joys and in pain

but sometimes we are just left
for the reasons of being left alone

sometimes we never took the time
to do little things left undone

until everything fades
and all that there was,
…is what is left in our mind
… been there with all the memories to last

then, memories remain
to be there forever

how can we end up
from where we start?
… how can we say goodbye?
… how can i say goodbye?

goodbyes are always the hardest to say
and the most painful to accept

goodbyes are always meant forever
and wishing it back is impossible

we know what is here
deep in our heart,
… wish there was never hellos
… to say goodbye

though it was a chance
for whatever there was

things were just never right
even from the very start
… and ends with “what is?”
… that is supposed to be

which only remains what is in the mind
a thought that should never be there

as it “all begins and ends in you”

      thank you so much dear… its a wonder if life had done so much for me or i have done so much in life, the imperfection of it all leaves no space for regrets, all is due “in pain”…
