Its not today that you left me
a long time has passed
memories and memoirs have faded
in the ocean of life, big and vast.
Its not today that I cried
hiding myself in the dark
sobs and tears are a familiar part
and cuts that leave a mark.
Its not today that I pasted an empty smile
for the fake world to see
all they know is a happy girl
who cares what's going inside me.
Its not today that I tried to let go
all that life bestowed
in the form of sufferings and pain
and hurdles on the road.
Its not today that I accepted
what life presented to me
you and I were different people
and were never meant to be 'we'.
Its not today that I heard 'let go and move on'
from folks to whom it matters not
time can never be a healer
but a mere illusionary guard.
