All's fair in love and war. Everyone loves everyone else, and the whole world is at war. So anything that you do is fair... break a girl's heart and tell me that, I'll believe you.


The waves of time, they sweep my feet...
At times, they can be three... oh, six feet deep!
They come every morning and evening to sweep
The tears of last night, and that of morning I weep

In the night, I lie awake
Wondering, what wrong I did make...
That I should cry, ever so late...
Into the night... Yes.. closed was the gate...

The gate, that kept us together
Or rather...the gate... that kept our hearts together
But, no... I didn't close the link...
Lot of people... lot of stuff... pushed me to the brink...they didn't let me think...

There... there's my mistake...
I can give up almost anything for your sake...
Now I know the mistakes that I make...
For a heart is not for anyone to break...

Well, no use of pondering over that now...
Yet I can't... I won't let go of it...how
Can you let go, that the essence of your existance...
Has imbibed as a part of it... yes... persistance...

Persistance is my answer to this....
I'll never let go of the one thing that keeps me together... this...
This feeling that I have... that feeling that tells me...
That you'll come by my way again...

And the days we passed... the time we spent together...
Will be etched in my memory forever...
The waves of time, they sweep my feet...
Yet they don't wipe my memories... for these memories are not weak...


The author's comments:
We all have memories. The question of weather they are the ones we want to remember or the ones we don't, is secondary. Even if we want to, there are some memories that don't let go, even if you growl at them like a rabid dog. This is for all the people, who are; by a sad twist of fate, end up not losing the ones we "ought" to let go. This serves as a mirror for the entire world, how a teenager feels, when the one he loves... he has to let go. So, the next time you tell a person estranged from his fiancee (forgive my French) to get over it... think again...
