A long step back and four steps front,
And how I waited for you there,
The lonely mountain was the place
where we were supposed to meet
You turned up late and I was gone
back to my town in the January cold.
The restless sleep and the sadness of heart
was unexplained to the hungry stomach
I lost control of space and time around me
and all I wished was a bubble wrap in space
You didn’t come and I felt lonely again,
in my small room beside the lake.
It snowed next morning in winter’s glory
the tea was hot and my heart was cold,
the minions by my bed still cheered
for there was hope that you would return,
Little rain drops poured from the clouds above,
And I thought my universe cries for me.
A kid came to my house and told you were there
plucking roses from the garden and waiting for me
Oh the poetry in the winds were calling my name
and I knew that second that I had to see you
O lovely winds, call my name again
for the year has started on a bright note
That afternoon, I rode the fastest horse to claim you
To bring you in my arms and proclaim my love,
when I reached your town you were there, waiting
for you knew I would come and take you away,
And so we rode on the road never travelled
and promised to start a new life in an untouched land..
