O Dear Friend

Ehsan Sehgal

O my stranger friend
I know you are my happiness
My love and my life
But this is not my fate
To meet and see you
Let me live alone
With my sadness
I am habitual of that
It is now a part of my life
It will always stay
I have nothing to offer you
Except worries and false hopes
It is better for you
Forget me and find someone else
He, who takes care of you
With the love and all things
That you need for your life
O my stranger friend
It is not necessary
We must live together
Though we are far from
Each other
It does not mean
Our love will die
That is no matter
If we can't meet physically
But our soul is always there
And it remains together
My dear
My dear
