Blue pen and red rose

There’s nothing certainly that I can do now
when you intend to leave this home and this place
you’ll live forever and reside now only in the memories of my heart
it breaks me that you made the decision without consultation
but if I never confessed my love for you, whom am I to question
slowly and slowly I had learnt the meaning of bright flowers
full of delicate emotions did my life become
till this sad news hit me and trembled the walls of my home of your leaving away
and when that sad day comes I don’t want to wake up to wave you bye
just leave secretly by reading the poem that I once wrote for you
just leave secretly by leaving your blue pen and the red rose onto the writing table
for it may give me some answers to the questions in the past
for it may give me some hope for the future to come

The thought of a life without a friend like you
seems to be so harsh and hard
there seems to be a block to my imagination
don’t know how would I cope up with this separation
when I had learnt to recognize your emotions and expressions
when my soul found a connection to your soul
till this day when this sad news hit me
shaking and breaking me inside and out
and when your departure day comes in my life, I don’t want to wake up to wave you bye
just leave secretly by writing few lines to that incomplete poem I once tried to write for you
just leave secretly by leaving your blue pen and the red rose onto the writing table
for it may give me some answers to the questions in the past
for it may give me some hope for the future to come
