I Still Remember

Ehsan Sehgal

I still remember
I went to the airport
Someone asked me to go
And see a special person
I do not know
Why did I listen to go there
Without any knowledge
Without any information
I went keeping
The hope
I still remember
I waited and waited
On the airport,
But no one was there
I checked everywhere
I looked every person
I did not find the face
For that, I was there,
After a long search
I saw a girl
I was not sure if she was,
For whom I was there
I felt myself a silly one
I returned home with sorry
I thought someone made me fool,
But a face I remember
It is now just a dream,
A dream forever
