Stolen or Given?

By Pankaj Bora
You  have stolen a part of me
or i gave it to you?
Sure is one thing
that i am not full now,
apparently half.
Whatever i do now 
is half.
I feel half while others
at fullest.
I cry half 
Whenever i laugh.
Intrests are half,
half is willingness to live.
Happiness has forgotten me,
crossed by enthusiasm.
could that part be retrieved,
or it's gone forever. 
Can't afford now 
give anyone the half left with.
That half was stolen or given?
Still confused!
But does not bother me anymore.
