When Dreams Shatter


Wandering the streets
Hurt and regret in heart
Endless journey to a destination unknown
No one to accompany him on the isolated path

Dreams shattered, for good or for the bad
Running aimlessly, away from pain or towards it
Every night he cocoons into his own little world
A restless soul that he is,
Makes him more vulnerable to the prick of fate
Shattered completely, with no aim in life

She comes in his life, fragrance of fresh flowers
He hates her, loathes her for the happiness she spreads
A smile spreads over her face, a smile that says "I know"
That moment he's mesmerized by her smile
That moment he knows who she is
Everything then falls in right places
Regrets dissolve as his angel holds his hand
