Why don’t we meet like strangers again
So that we introduce ourselves again
Holding hands together
Like we did
On our first meeting

With the presence of trees ,stones and the grass
We said our vows
For better and for worse
In sickness and in health
And with that the birds declared as
Boyfriend and girlfriend

On my death bed, but you’re nowhere
To be seen
Or to be heard
I thought you said in sickness and in health
I was stupid to think you would stick by me
To fight this demon together
To fight this cancer as one strong couple
But i was wrong
Maybe you meant in health and not sickness

I’ve been held captive by my thoughts
My very disturbing thoughts and fantasies
I’m a prisoner of my own thoughts
A prisoner of my own feelings
A prisoner in my world
I thought ours was a true love
That cannot be shaken by anything
Not even the tsunami waves

Regrets is all I have remained with
As I am slowly fading away
You are happily enjoying your moments together
With her
The very girl we quarrelled about
Every time I think of our first meeting
Tears flow from my heart

I hate thinking about you
I hate reminscing our good memories
I hate crying over you
I hate the sound of the birds over the sky
The very birds that witnessed our ‘marriage’
They remind me of our ‘marriage’
I hate everything to do with you

Alone but strong
I’ll fight this battle
I will fight with all my strength left
I’ll conquer this ‘cancer’
I will fight to the very end
And I will win this war
