A changed friend

My dear friend, you have changed.
Your voice seems to have lost its melody,
it sounds so pale.
As if a Punjabi party song is played
on a D-minor scale.

My dear friend, you have changed.
You used to share how you spent your day and I listened peacefully to reduce your burden.
All I wanted to see you fly.
Now most of the times you’re not in a mood to talk, to my 100 words message,
a small Yes or No is your reply.

My dear friend, you have changed.
I hardly remember our last outing, was it a dinner or a trip?
It’s been a long time span.
I want to see you in person, share chocolates with you, but every time I ask!!
I hear, “Sorry!! But I already have a plan.”

My dear friend, you have changed.
Is this for real or I’m having a bad dream.
You are by my side but it doesn’t feel like we’re a team.

My dear friend, you have changed.
In-fact you were changing everyday when we were together.
Back then I knew where this change is coming from,
so that change didn’t have much of an effect.
And now we see each other after such a huge time gap,
I don’t have a link which leads to this new version of you,
may be that’s the reason now that our hearts don’t connect.
