How many times have you been mistaken for someone else in a crowd or when you are missing someone so dearly that you are constantly looking for bits of him in other people.I guess ” The out of sight, out of mind” analogy doesn’t work for the people who are longing for their lost ones.Love always leaves a deep impression on your soul, which is hard to forget. Love reflects in mysterious ways.

“One of the saddest things in life, is the things one remembers.”
― Agatha Christie


I see your reflection everywhere I go

I see it on the friendly face I know

in the warmth of the hug

in the kiss on the forehead

it makes me smile

it makes me forget

the grinding pain in my heart

To lose you and still living in your shadows

I just can't let you go

can't fear the pain

of being alone anymore

Sometimes a loud laughter

across room startles me

Makes my eyes wander in grief

You are within me but not with me

The thought of losing you

makes me somber

wish I could scrape the 

edges of my heart

and make it  more rounder

So the feeling hurt and pinches less

and I can stop being breathless

Oh! the path I have jumped and skipped 

to see a fleeting glance of you

the scorching pain in my heart

of living without you

I look for you everywhere

You reflect in people everywhere

It's hard for me to live this way

when love reflects in mysterious ways.
