Little girl inside, broken one too many times
She kept it all inside, painted on a smile
Under a frozen sun she stood to face the pain
She said to herself through this she will gain
At times the darkness would leave her in vain
Then when the knife began to chip she braved herself
Picked up her bags and weathered the storm ahead

Standing strong through a thousand tears
Battling private wars amid a million fears
Making it through the night sometimes with no one in sight
Intermittently knowing somewhere she will find light
Convincing everyone around her there’s a reason behind this thunder and rain
Persevering for one day she will look through all the hurt and pain
Perpetuating through adversity to find a new person inside
Yes! One day the phoenix will surely rise

Starting over is not easy, it’s so dark at times
She knows it very well & made peace with the fact
Everytime she fell. Wiped the dust off her shoulders
Stood up and walked on as if she never stumbled
She won’t wallow in despair; a brighter day hides behind this sorrow
She will look ahead for there will be tomorrow
When her wings will spread, her eyes will sparkle
Standing proud, ready to take to the sky

Always remember
Butterflies are free to fly
You’re a butterfly, go on and fly
Soar up high above, your spirit should never die
Leave the past behind and don’t you ever cry
For you are a butterfly :)

Then when love was mine

Slow whispers from beyond
Your face comes to mind
Memories resurface from a place i left behind
All alone as i lay, in the dark it comes to light
Gave it all up for this endless fight
Vivid pictures we painted once together
Once known, Love is so fair weather
Smiles we abandoned for no reason
Moments stolen like the cruel summer season

Lately Im so caught up in you, can we revisit us again
I visualize your incandescent eyes, hear the slow heavy sighs
Laughter and the late night games, breathless and fervid at the same time
Pressed against each other, drifting away into another time
Float away into an intimate daze, a space only made for you and I
Trembling inside yet wanting to stay, knowing very well i wont go away
Holding on to you so tight, a feeling once so right
Miss you.

You know i need your love and still you hide away
You keep haunting me in my dreams
Do i wander into your mind
Like you creep into mine?
Sometimes i wonder if i ever cross your thoughts
Do you think of me
Do you still care
If you do then know that im still here
Im still here

At the same junction you left me
Im still here
Do you even care?
