"FOREVER ENDS NOW" by Nikunj Gupta
There are tears in my eyes,
As I watch the Sun set.
All my thoughts are of him,
I think about when we first met.
I was only two then,
When he moved into the house beside mine,
The world must've shaken that day,
For it marked the meeting of two lives meant to intertwine.
What a strange relationship it was,
Back when it first did start,
maybe that was the first sign,
Of a friendship meant to last.
It began with a glance,
And then small friendly talks,
To meeting up everyday,
To going out for walks
And all that led to a bond so strong,
A bond that held on,
even when everything went wrong,
A bond that lasted so long,
That now when he's gone,
It leaves me so forlorn.
I smile as i think of his,
I laugh as I think of his,
I think of how unfair it was,
Of how it was never supposed to end like this.
I couldn't carry his sorrow,
I couldn't carry his pain,
With me or without me,
Maybe to him, It was all the same.
I regret not being able to help him,
I regret not being able to tell him to strive.
I couldn't stop him either,
As I saw him take his own life.
I wonder what those promises of forever meant,
my mind filled with questions of where, when, and how,
I guess it all only has one explanation,
"Forever Ends Now”
