Have I ever told you lately?

a poem by Arijit Mukherjee

Will you trust me when I say I love you?
Would it make a difference if I wasn’t there?
My feelings for you will never change
Because you don’t know how much I really care.
I have felt you in the melody of music,
I have felt you whenever I was touched,
I am sure, that when I missed you so much,
You weren’t totally unaware.

Will you believe me when I say I’ll be happy,
If you ever really felt my love for you?
It may be that I do not understand love,
That’s why I don’t know what to do.
Then let us call it my addiction,
something on which my life depends,
because you fill up all my senses,
and then you take away my pain.

Will you answer my questions truly?
Will you love me unconditionally?
The smile and the beating of my heart,
I wish I could go back to the start,
the melody of music and of time
has cast a spell on us divine.
Life sometimes leaves us stranded,
So alone and empty handed.
