Of dreams and reality
Why are you claiming her now?
You left her broken to pieces,
Never even looking back
Blaming her for crimes she never did.
You never cared to mend the pieces
He picked them up and mended
Suddenly you came back and noticed
You have thought a rose thorn.
Her fragrance reached your land
The beautiful rose he cherished by love,
You tracked and found her out again,
And thought she will surrender to you.
Well, she did not surrendered
For her heart was already won
Don’t be sad my dear friend
Once lost things are rare to be found
