The Unsaid

She: It’s the New Year, a new beginning they say
How eagerly I was waiting for this day
For he has taken a decision, he said 
To be disclosed to me, today!
And for all that I know him
I know pretty well what he’d say-
“Will you marry me, my love?”
I’d blush a little and then a ‘yes’ will I say!

He: It’s the New Year, a new beginning they say
Indeed I was waiting for this day
The decision I’ve taken, good or bad
I need to tell her, today!
It doesn’t matter anymore, what others think or say 
And when she asks – 
“ Are you sure of what you said, my love?”
I’d pause a little and then a ‘yes’ will I say!

She: My wedding gown is ready almost, hemmed with dreams and desire 
Your proposal that I was waiting for, speak my love, those words I yearn to hear!

He: My dream job is ready almost, with terms and conditions that apply
I’m sorry you don’t fit anywhere there, so I’ve come to say, goodbye
