I look at you from afar,
As you laugh and smile,
Looking lovingly at him –
Who should have been me.
It should have been me,
The person making you glow.
It could have been me,
The person loving you so.
Often, I wonder, is it because I came too late,
That I lost the chance to be your date?
Would it be different if I came on time,
Or was it all in my mind?
I know, I shouldn’t be asking,
Fate has decided things for us.
More so for me, who’s paying a price –
To make the right choice, take the right path.
But still, I can’t brush that longing,
The feeling of wanting you.
Can’t help wishing to be beside you
Though it’s not meant to be.
Thus I look at you from afar
As you smile lovingly at him,
That I would forever wish was me,
Me telling you: you’re mine.
