Perhaps You Come Back

Ehsan Sehgal

Every day, every time
I look towards the way
With my rapid breathings
With intense eagerness
And with many hopes
Perhaps today you come back
Realising my love and devotion
That is only for you
There is no one in the world than you,
Who has won my heart
My dreams, my life,
And even my breaths
But I feel pain and shock
I make sad myself and hurt
I return to my room with tears
For a new day
For a new hope
Perhaps you come back
Perhaps you come back
