3A.M By Sawan Sharma

Written by Editor

It is 3am
And I am still awake
Not much has changed
Between then and now
I used to have a phone in my hand then too
I have a phone in my hand even today
Nothing much has really changed
Between now and then
Just that
Then I used to talk to her
Now to her picture
Then I used to write for her
Now for the memories of her
Then I used camera for a video call
Now for music
Then I used earphones to talk on call
Now to listen to those recorded calls
Nothing much has really changed..
She was my world then too
She is my world now too
Just that
Then I used to enjoy it with her
Now with her memories..!!

2. You may have a bad past..
But I wanna help you move on
I may not be your first one..
But I sure wanna be your last..
Doesn’t matter if those beautiful lips met with someone else
Doesn’t matter if you slept with someone else
But I now wanna kiss you..sleep with you forever..and no one else
I just want to live a life with you..
Just that life..
Where I am your husband and you my wife..!!

3. Opened whatsapp
Searched her name
saw her online
People may call it coincidence
I call it connection…
