Going away.


Then I suddenly realized that I could not recognize you because you were not the same anymore. You had changed, put on a different face and you didn't come to stay, but to go away forever said you wanted to give me a better life.

Though there was a hope of a better life, living without you was like living in the dark. I would wait for you to come back each day.

One day you finally did come back. But why didn't the light come with you!?

I tried searching for you in the dark. And honestly, searching for you in the dark was easy. Because I remembered how you felt.

But when there was light everywhere suddenly and even though you were right in front of me, I could not recognize you.

I could never forget the way you felt but had I forgotten how you looked?

Then I suddenly realized that I could not recognize you because you were not the same anymore. You had changed, put on a different face and you didn't come to stay, but to go away forever.
