Just for a moment

Love lasts just for a moment.

You’ll be here for just a moment.

I know it fully well, and have taken a decision.

I’ll be there waiting for you with the keys in the ignition.

And then maybe we can go for a ride just for a moment.

It’s better to have fun rather than sit and lament.

If it’s going to be just a moment, I’m going to enjoy every bit.

Even though tears sting at my heart like within a thousand fires lit.

Just stay back for an evening out, or a night or two.

Just give me a chance- your heart to woo.

I had everything planned, roses and candlelight.

The flames dancing in the rhythm of my sight.

And then I go and spoil it all; cracking a stupid joke.

And asking still smiling broadly: “When’ll you be back?”

And then the magic of the moment is broken as the smiles disappear.

You go serious, my a tad –bit- too- broad smile is replaced by fear.

I may not be anybody of consequence.

But you are of utmost importance.

I may leave your life without a trace.

And no one around you will even know my face.

But when I’m gone remember I’m always remembering you.

That I never ever once wanted to say adieu.

I know neither do you do, but I understand people change.

With time and distance hearts estrange.

But baby, I’m writing this to let you know.

I’m going to be stupid till the day I go.

Love for me doesn’t last for a moment.

But I’m willing to take chances and give my emotions vent.

Hold your hand and hope that this moment’s an eternity.

Till once again when ancient will become modernity.
