Lie For Love

By Arjun Dahal

  Time has gone and changed, Now has left only memories and pain. People say¬†nothing to do with the past. It's gone. How can I forget my past? Even better than the rest, Though time has geared fast.   I don't wanna be alone, I wish you were here right now, with me. You still reside in my soul, Smile infront of my eyes, And I can do everything for your love. Yes, I can even tell you lies.   I can tell you that I'm a hero. Even though it's impossible, I can promise you to bring the stars from sky. And when you're shy, I'll be the one to provide you voice. You know dear, For your love, I can lie.   I'll make you believe, I can be a poet and say rhymes. Even with my stupid words, I can make you forget the time. I'll sing a serenade in your name, To make you realize, You're the lucretia in my veins. I'll assure you to take you in my dreams, And for your mistakes, I'll carry the sins. When you're depressed, I'll provide you catharsis. And If you're tired, Should I carry you on my back?   I can vow to keep you safe, And yes I'll, till my last breath. I'll prophecize our future, Where only you, me and our dreams dwells. I'll dance for a while, Just to make you smile. I can promise you to bring back the time, To make you realize, you're only mine.   I shall take you high up above, Beyond the summit of Everest. And I would hide myself from you, To see you worried and give a surprise. When we shall sit in the shades of trees, I'll lie down in your arms. And tell you, I would go crazy without you. In the midst of cold air, I would caress you and ask, "Would you love me till the eternity?" And baby, I don't expect a lie from you at that moment. Or else, I would go completely dormant. I can tell you lies for a thousand¬†of time, Just to love you and get your love back for once.
