A Wisp of Smoke

One day, you’re here, talking to me,

The next, you’re gone…

Like a wisp of smoke…!


One day, you’re here, asking questions,

And before I answer any of them,

You’re gone…

Like a wisp of smoke…!


My heart breaks every time I think of you—

Every time I try to be with you,

You are here with me,

Yet so far away—

With me in mind,

Far away in reality.


I remember

When you used to joke with me,

The cute little smiles

I used to hide from you;

Now that I think about it,

I don’t know why I did that.

Maybe I was too young yet,

And too naïve,

But you had always

Made yourself

So clear to me—

So clear,

Yet I was too dense

To understand

Your subtle messages.


Now those days are long gone,

You’re always so near to me

Yet so far away…!

Gone…

Like a wisp of smoke…!


One day, you’re here, looking at me

With your innocent smiling eyes,

The next, you’re gone…

Like a wisp of smoke…!


My heart breaks every time I think of you—

Every time I try to be with you,

You are here with me,

Yet so far away—

With me in mind,

Far away in reality.


I miss you so much,

My dear friend:

The least I can do

Is relive all those memories,

And say “Yes”,

As if I were back in time—

All those days gone,

Like a wisp of smoke…!


My dear friend,

I wish I had been more responsive,

I shall be now,

And I believe that,

If I keep my hope alive,

Then, you shall come back to me;

And when you do,

I can really say “Yes”.
