One

One

By: Varun Batta, 4B Computer Engineering student.

 

Just a moment, a sight, a thought

Of just one person, one feeling, one dream

Always leads to a physical reaction

In core muscles throughout my being

 

Da‐dum, Da‐dum, Da‐dum, Da‐dum

Heart is beating normally, until I view

Just a few letters change beating to racing

When the origin of those letters is my darling, you

 

Just a wait, a stay, a longing

For just one event, one time, one instant

Always seems to take forever

Time just passing, seeming distant

 

Tick‐tock, Tick‐tock, Tick‐tock, Tick‐tock

The clock is bidding the moments adieu

Moments last forever, they never fade

When they are the moments I share with my dearest, you

 

Just a check, a swipe, a peek

To see one source, one view, one block

Always I am sending and receiving

Just a few words, to reply and talk

 

Da‐ding, Da‐ding, Da‐ding, Da‐ding

Notifications continue to come anew

Only one of which curves my lips

When from the love of my life, you
