I’ll Wait for You by Sanjana S Shrivastav
Whenever I look around
Love’s everywhere to be found
Alas, I’ve not found you yet
We haven’t even met
And I still miss you
Are you just a dream that’s too good to be true?
Without you, everyday seems to be vain
I’m left with no choice but to bear the pain
I feel meaningless and lost
Oh, I want to meet you at any cost
I simply can’t wait for the day
When you’ll walk into my life - and you’ll be there to stay
When no more will I have to aimlessly roam
For in your heart, I’ll have my home
When you and I will create together
Memories meant to last forever
Through every smile and every tear
We’ll be there for each other- what’s left to fear?
I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine-
Like the magnificent moon will our love shine
As our teeth fall out and our hair turns grey
We’ll think about how glad we are to have run into each other on the way
Together we’ll sit back and reminisce
How simply each other’s presence made our lives bliss
I find it immensely difficult to wait
Alas, we’re after all, mere puppets on the strings of fate
So until my cherished dream comes true
For as long as it takes, I’ll wait for you.
