. “ first love “~by Raj Babu Gandham


 

 

.
“ first love “

I knew well , you liked him a lot
Though you pretended not
.
He was young and wealthy
In riches money can buy
.
I could only lend my heart
In return I asked nothing and naught
.
I loved you for the heart you possess
The care you took, when I was in distress
.
I couldn’t say words you want
And pretend what I am not
.
By telling you lies about my life
Never wanted to chase you for love
.
I carried, my thoughts of love
Towards you, and only you, within me
.
I was dumb and shy
No riches to show, no money to spend
.
In silence I gazed you and dreamed
Because, you were the first

I loved you with my heart and soul
Though you never cared for riches in heart
.
I let you go and let you chase
The riches you sought
.
With the man you moved
With him you laughed and made merry
.
I watched you in silence
Though carried pain in my mute heart
.
I wanted you to be happy
For I loved you true to my being
.
Now after these long times
When I buried all my memories
.
You sprouted, as if from space
Unprepared I, froze in my time
.
Dumb I was, dead I am now
Seeing you, like a pulped fruit
.
My heart wailed
My soul cried
.
For the pains you went through
For the hurts you carried along

Can I hold you now
Can I care you now
.
Come to my arms
Care for my warmth
.
O ! my first love
.
