I   have  destroyed  your  life and   crushed   your  dreams

But  you   see  me  with  that  happy   face  of  yours

I  wantedto  reverse  time

But  you  saidit’s  fine 

And  told  me   that  God   doesn’t  want  you  to  have  a  leg

It  was  not  fine  for  me  at  all, I  regretted   it   everday

I  cried  everyday  for  that  leg  which  you  had  lost 

Because  of  me

But you  said  that  my  tears  were more  painful  to  watch 

than losing your  leg

But  one  day  everything  changed

I  came  home  early  to surprise you

But the one surprised  was me

The  brother  whom I had  never seen crying

Had  cried  that  day  because of me

On  that  day, I  understood that  the me  then 

 Was  causing  you  pain  than  I  ever  imagined 

That  day  I  learnt  to accept  what  had  happened

The   me  now  doesn’t regret

And  doesn’t  want  to  reverse time

I accept  life  as  such  

And  will  cherish  you  forever
