Title: Remember When?

Dedicated to: August 24, 2015
There we were, talking on the phone

Miles between us — so far, and yet so close

We talk about trivial stuff and laugh

We talk about serious stuff then laugh.
The reality is that I have confessed

The fantasy is that there’d be an “us”.

What seemed so sweet then

Became the topics of “Remember when…”
First call, first night, first hello

First time I heard your voice on stereo

I said, “Goodbye, g’night”

You said, “That’s all?” and I smiled.
Of all the recordings on my phone,

Of all the things you’ve said,

G’night, I love you; is the best.

G’night, I love you; and my name in the end.
If only I had known that —

that night and the succeeding ones won’t matter

I would not have been this hurt

I would not have been this blue.
If only I had foreseen the hurt that —

that call and the subsequent ones won’t matter

I would not have hoped and loved

I would not have smiled and remembered.
Because now, the days pass by

And I remember your words

Now the days pass by and I —

I remember you saying “I love you”.
