Azma Lahji :
You have my heart 
You keep it safe, 
And in your pocket 
It will stay 

I ask, “Protect it?” 
You say, “With my life"
And now I know 
Everything’s alright

But a tear still falls 
To the ground 
And you tilt my chin up 
With a frown...

Arshpreet Sarao:

You hug me close 
I hold on tight 
I’m scared to death 
Of you going to fight. 
You pull away 
And climb up high 
Whispering a very sad 
“I love you, goodbye.” 
I nod and wave 
As the wind plays with my hair 
Feeling inside 
That this isn’t fair. 
You turn and gallop 
Into the Sun 
“I love you!” I scream 
At the top of my lungs. 
Knowing you heard me 
I sit on the ground. 
I stare at the sky 
And cry out loud. 
My knight was gone 
Leaving his princess alone 
Wanting her knight 
To be at home.

The only possession princess had was 'love'
But her prayers refelcted from the sky above;
she waited for years for the knight to return
but it was like expecting ashes to earn.

"time heals" as it is said,
her wounds scarred as time fled
One day,she saw an unbelievable sight,
The knight on a horseback, came to light
Her breath seemed to stop,
And her heart raced
As the knight approached closer,
As the horse paced.

She expected something to ignite within
A sweet pain,a feel of new skin;
She searched her heart to find what went wrong
As she couldn't find any bell that rung.
Surprising and shocking as it came to her,
instead of being happy,all she felt was numb.

He spoke of her love,of his wrongs and its harms,
but nothing helped,neither the warmth of his arms.
And as it was getting dark and difficult to see,
She got up and said with a sigh,
"I thought my love was boundless as sea,
But it died and so.... Goodbye"
