Until (जब तक / అంతవరకు)

We say things
we don’t mean
promises we don’t keep
until one of us is gone

Then we wallow
in sadness and memories
that we should’ve made
until it’s just too late

Our love is selfish
sometimes there is none
we take for granted
until it hits us hard

For the moments
when we are needed
excuses are made
until time feels incomplete

Life can be won
if only we stayed
in the present we seek
until there’s no regret at all

Happiness is not
an illusion of the mind
but the peace within
until there’s no more hurt

Success is no longer
a myth for distraught
because you’ve defined
until it becomes just yours

Hope is then not a term
for those who lurke
as each of us deserve
until it is a fulfilling truth
