I thought I knew the depth of love,
Till you came into my life,
What started as only but just a shake of your palm,
Left me overwhelmed by an aura I can't describe...

I thought I knew happiness, till our love grew,
Sharing the best laughter, a radiance that only us knew,
Hand in hand as we walked under a sky so blue,
Day after day, with a kiss, our Love we renewed...

I thought I knew karma, till I started breaking all the rules,
Never would a day pass without me lying to you,
Pursuing temporary pleasures, evading what was good,
Ignoring the possibility of ending up with life without you...

I thought I knew pain, till I looked in your eyes,
Haunted by the gaze that befell my eyes,
Then and only then did I realise,
I had known not how much you meant to me,
Till that moment you left my side...
