would you come back?

the happiness that i held
between my fingers
like the grains of sand,
has slid away
the colors have faded
the eyes are jaded
The dreams have gone astray

you said you'd return
after the enemy's vanquished
on our wedding day
you promised you'd come
and i had just begun
counting the sun rays

the pretty bangles you gave
i kept it with care
hadn't worn since your birthday
they say you are gone
my heart's forlorn
see, i have them on, today

would you come back
to the fragrance of henna
and never color me gray?
they say they've sold
my dreams of gold
have you really gone away?
