Ehsan Sehgal

I am always truthful
I'll stay
I never lied to you and shall never
I am the same colour of love
That is your reality of the dream
That still exists
You only need the eyes of wisdom
Feeling of acceptance
I am not changed
I have only taken the distance
It does not mean
I have left you
I have broken your heart and trust
I am same as like a red rose
Don't make yourself confused
It is still only for you
Just take it and put it
In your perfumed hairs
Please restore your trust
I was, I am, I will remain
Your trustful friend
