ONE LAST TRY!!

 

Why didn’t I give it one last try,

Alas, now there’s nothing I can do,

But whimper and cry.

Why didn’t I give myself one chance,

Why didn’t I confess my love for her.

Why didn’t I muster enough courage,

And just ask her out once.

Well, she could have denied,

To be my companion,

But at least I ought to have tried,

Just once I should have brought my thoughts,

To her notice and attention…

 

But now, there’s no point thinking,

What I should have done,

The thing is, I didn’t express my feeling,

And now this pain of loneliness is excruciating,

And I don’t think it’s even healing.

Why didn’t I give it one last try,

Alas, now there’s nothing I can do,

But whimper and cry.

 

We have been nice friends now for almost an year,

And I didn’t want our friendship to end,

That’s why I didn’t ask her out,

It wasn’t fear of refusal,

Or lack of pluck,

But just I didn’t want to lose her,

As a friend, a sweet buddy, so dear.

 

But now as I see her with that tall, muscular guy,

I just ask myself one small thing,

Why didn’t I give it one last try,

Alas, now there’s nothing I can do,

But whimper and cry.

 

I am a bit jealous about the pair.

And I am trying my best to forget

That once I had a crush on her.

It’s really hard to forget your first love,

Harder if it’s as gorgeous as her.

I liked every trait of her,

And I wished to be with her forever.

Yeah, she was a bit dumb at times,

But she had managed to put a smile,

On my usually solemn face,

That too many a times.

 

I wish I could have given it one try,

But alas, now I can do nothing about it,

But whimper and cry.

I wish her all the happiness in the world,

I wish her all the best,

After all, she’s the best……

    ninad… wat i like most abt ur poems is that there is loads of innocence nd purity in them… they seem more like a dialogue of u wid urslf… and hence they seem more to be an xtension of ur being… don’t know u,so can’t say to wat xtend i m right…but still i m sure u njoy writing urslf… 🙂

    Nice poem of true feeings.
    In such cases it is better to say to yourself.

    “It is too late now,
    And better you did not try,
    Don’t assume she would have said yes,
    For if she would have said “no”
    what would have been the result of your try?,
    A frustration and a life-long feeling,
    “Why the hell did I try”
    “It would have been better if I did not try”
    ” Whatever happens is for the better, laugh don’t cry ….!”
    🙂
