#15 If it wasn't meant to be

If it wasn't meant to be
Why did our paths cross?

If it wasn't meant to be
What made us come that close?

If it wasn't meant to be
Why were you not a stranger?

If it wasn't meant to be
Why those arms felt so secure?

If it wasn't meant to be
Why I thought you are the ‘one’?

If it wasn't meant to be
Why it felt so perfect?

If it wasn't meant to be
Why you always knew it all?
Maybe you knew it all along
For you started to move apart

Maybe you knew it all along
For you left me alone with broken heart

Maybe you knew it all along
For you never said what I yearned to hear

Maybe you knew it all along
For you took me for-granted forever

If it wasn't meant to be
Why didn't I ever come to know?

"If it wasn't meant to be,
why you became more than just some stranger,
If it wasn't meant to be,
why you made me fall for that mask,
If it wasn't meant to be,
why you ever came in my life?
If it wasn't meant to be,
why i fell for you???"

He came, he stayed, and then he went. Maybe because, this was the course chosen for both of you. Cherish it, that you had a beautiful time, and a good companion.
Nice read.

an excellent read....the 1st 14 odd lines were superb...the words almost struck me....


Very well said.
Relationship and emotions need right conditioning, though description fits in many.

Hey, Hi

if it was meant to be,
you would have known it all along.
If it was meant to be,
this would have been a love song.

But everyone has got thy choice,
maybe fixed in the heaven above.
We actually have no right to blame
anyone, for the lack of love.


Why didn't I ever come to know? Because you were too busy loving.


Deepika. Nice poem.. Thanks for your constant support.. Hmm..

@ deepika..

Hmmm, I didn't forgot to reply to your comments.. But missed the comment as it went and sat inside the SPAM folder.. Just before a hour I checked and published it. Hmm... I am very much tired after the IndiBlogger meet so thought of replying tomorrow.. But after seeing your mail I thought of replying to it by now..

PS: I know that you are as sweet as me in checking the repsonse to the older comments..

Have a great day..

Someone is Special


Evocative, compelling read.....Like Purba said...you were so in love.Nothing mattered.


Nice write up... and neat space :)


Loved each and every bit of it and could very well relate to each word....

Very touching post deepika....


unrequited love is sad! here’s my new year potluck- http://fiveloaf.wordpress.com/2010/03/15/life/


love it.
well done..
keep wondering...



The repetitions work well here. I love these apparently simple poems which actually contain so much emotion! Well done indeed.



Great poem - it moves well via the story.


A sad song.


Quite thoughtful..
Every line had a same emotion.

Nicely penned down..

not to depress you but only to make you realize to move on.........


You never know it was not meant to be until its said and done....
when it ends, when the heart breaks you still cling on and take a while to accept, even then, only this much, maybe, just maybe it was never to be...sad, evocative words but often a reality.


too close to real life....reading it was kind of moving...... good one !


A really lovely poem of love and the mystery of love...

Best wishes, Eileen


You can call me anything you like deepika... Tani sounds cute.... Thanks.... :)

Hello, thanks for visiting my stream. Looks like this post is your real angst .. unspoken and blogged. I wouldnt have been able to post my pains in public sphere.. so kudos for that. Will come back !


sad melancholy questions...


Destiny plays strange games and we our just slaves too it...years pass and yet at times you don't know the reason why?

Quite painful yet a wonderful read :)

Take Care,


If it wasn't meant to be
Why did our paths cross?

I ask myself this question day after day! month after month!!!! Why!


Every broken heart's tale. Beautiful.


It doesn't appears to be a fiction because words are much stranger than a fiction. This is life.


I'm sure most of us could relate to this..very touchy!...


waaao! Amazingly Perfect expression of the most popular human imperfection called love!!!
It happens, quite often, when we choose to see jst what we want to see and start neglecting the truth!!!
It might be true that choosing Love as an ingredient of life has made it imperfect bt I personally believe that it was the best decision ever made!!!

In short!!! Words are great, true nd etc etc... Bt njoy the imperfection as it is n be happyyy!!!

(jyada bda ho gaya! :D :D)


Everything happened was meant to be............

Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I'm planning to start my own website soon but I'm
a little lost on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free
platform like Wordpress or go for a paid option?
There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused .. Any suggestions? Bless you!

Hello, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
When I look at your blog site in Safari, it looks fine but when
opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.

I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
Other then that, awesome blog!
