    Only once in life
    I chose something for me.
    Something that made me happy.
    And so I wanted to keep it a secret,
    safe in my heart...
    away from this world
    of deceptions and manipulations.
    But deceit comes disguised
    in forms manifold.
    I too couldn't recognise,
    when I got to behold,
    love and concern
    showering upon my choice.
    I let them know,
    I opened up and showed
    my treasured little world,
    that unfailingly made me smile.
    They clapped with me,
    danced and sung songs of glee.
    Until I was too lost in ecstasy,
    to notice how they snatched it all away...
