On Love

Love

Is a heart who just lost its half

Staring at the twilight

With nostalgic songs

playing in the background

Eyes holding the tears

Hidden in a pretty smile

Longing terribly inside

Love

Is a ringing phone

From a worried wife

To her taxi driver husband

Working all night

With almost no chance

To grab something

To eat or to drink

Love

Is a lonely soul

Despite not alone

Feeling lost in the crowd

Waiting and guessing

When would that soulmate came?
