Of kept & broken Promises.

Life never promised you anything, but people did
Day after day, ever since you were a kid
Some said they will never leave you
No matter what, they will always believe you

Some said they will always be around
From ‘reaching for stars’ to ‘touching the ground’
What happened to ‘Till death do us part’
Sharing secrets, acting crazy, mending broken heart

Some said they won’t ever cheat you
Won’t lie, won’t forget, won’t ever mistreat you
Those promises of being in touch
Teary-eyed goodbyes saying “Don’t miss me too much”

Some said they will see you once in a while
That they will walk with you for thousand miles
Blame it on people, distance, destiny or time
Not every story has a happy ending, not every poem rhymes

I don’t say they were all sweet lies
Because things change and time flies
Accept that you haven’t always been on the receiving end
You’ve made your share of mistakes without having much to defend

People come and people go, leaving behind stories,
It’s important what you do with those random memories
You can either cry over it & feel bad,
Or simply say “It was nice what we once had”

Everyone is bound by their own limits
Not everything remains forever, you have to admit
Least you can do is be thankful for those beautiful rides
And value them who never left your side

Because there are people, who never judged or put a label,
When almost everything else was unstable
There are people who will always love you unconditionally
Whether you are broke, sick, unreasonable or just plain silly.
