Fading love. (A ballad)


Time for the love to fade.

I saw you through a distant land

The space ‘tween us measured in light years 

The distance we had cannot be filled 

Even by the elder wand. 


Smiling with a surreal charm on her face

I had never seen such a glance 

A feeling profound and ethereal

a glee with a halo charm.



I wish I had a chance to express. 

I think she never felt the same. 

Time eschewed away with a tithony*

The gift of remembrance and melancholy. 

All cares and laugh all gone. 

As the distance became profound 

a reference point like in physics 

In the frame that doesn’t  exist. 



You are my love, it’s not a fallacy. 

but am none for you, not in your abbacy.

I am a wave no sooner I’ll wash away.

And I hope you the best,

And you deserve more than me.

For I am alone in a deserted land.

Like a bird without a nest that begin to fly. 

Like a shine on brim of horizon beginning to fade. 


You my love a part that I miss. 

Like a rainbow in my sky, 

That give me the smile. 

Yet for a while. 


You have to move away from me. 

You will be more than happy, I bet 

Just take a step move ahead and 

Give me a smile and fare me well.. 

Its time time for my love to fade. 



*a word play, derived from a proper noun Tithonus. Spare me for that

Play the song if you want.

With lots of love (lol)
