Hello Pain, I remember you

More than love you were always there

You demanded my attention, you demanded to be felt

You tested my resolve

Hello Pain…

Thank you for making me love the ocean, the mountain tops, the moon and the stars

You made chocolates sweeter and Ice creams better

You made me write poems and sing all those songs

On sleepless nights, movies were my escape

Pain….You were always there, my constant

When it was too much, you numb me from the inside…

While I pretend to smile on the outside

Hello Pain…

My constant, you cleanse my eyes with tears

You made me appreciate the sunrise and people’s smiles

You made me better

Hello Pain…

I rather have you than give you to someone else

You taught me patience, you taught me sacrifice

You are my constant..
