Time goes by

Poem by: Despoina 

A touch of silence fills my soul
I’m lost in the crowd, feeling alone.
I’m bound with thoughts that come and go,
Searching for just one hope to grow!

Recalling moments from the past,
The only thing that seems to last,
Is best known as the inner voice,
Reminding me my one last choice!

What made me change my point of view?
Well, that is relevant to you!
Again, I’m just about to cry,
Thinking of time that still goes by…

And all those years I’ve spent with you

What was the least that you could do?

You brought me tears, you gave me pain,

You’ve made my life to seem so vain.

 There are so many things that, now,
I want to do in life, somehow…
I've wasted my youth  standing by you,
Because your love was never true!

 I keep on walking, step by step.
It is the only thing that’s left!
As time goes by, it ain’t that rough!
At last, I feel I’m strong enough!

    Τι χάνετε δεν μπορείτε να πάρετε πίσω, υπάρχει πάντα μόνο είναι, κινείται προς τα εμπρός. Ευχαριστώ για την ανταλλαγή αυτή. Πολύ ανάδευση.
