The next time , When you'll put on that black shirt I love , And look yourself in the mirror , I hope , my endless compliments would echo in the back of your mind , Will you remember me like that?
The next time , When a notification will pop up right in the middle of the night , And you'll check your phone in haste , I hope , my weird-irritating messages would flash before your eyes , (for a while) Will you remember me like that?
The next time , When you'll cross the 90-minutes limit over a phone call , And abruptly , the call would disconnect on its own , I hope , your call logs would desperately wish my name to give a call back , ( you too ) Will you remember me like that?
The next time , When you'll mistakenly hear the words that I often used to say , And you'll smile a little , I hope that my voice would reverberate in your ears for a minute or so , Will you remember me like that?
The next time , When you'll wait a little longer under that tree along that very road , And a school bus numbered 20 would cross by , I hope that the way my impatient eyes used to search you there , the same way , you'd expect to get a glimpse of me for one last time , Will you?
All the way to my locality , sipping the tea in that cornered 'tapri' , Stuck in my thoughts and lost for a while , ....Yes , just remember me like that ❤️
