I can’t unwrap and unravel my life
without being intertwined to who you are;
You’re my smile
You’re my rose
You’re my sunshine
My very wings that soar the sky
You’re my water, raindrops of tickles
My joy and my soul.
I long to be half the life
I’ll carry my memories to tomorrow
I will carry the victorious and quiet
Pain of hoops you passed through
I will carry your life like a golden frame capturing
An endless smile, light for my world to see.
I will carry your sentimental thoughts and rituals
Quirks and mystery;
Things no one understood or had the patience
For precious’ worth.
I carry the milestones you travelled
To live my life as a reflection of your zeal and not your
Would-be purpose fulfilled;
A Kleenex of missed opportunities.
You were moulded out of rock
To withstand the greatest trial
And still …… to conquer even this, a lesser preferred life.
Who is like you?
Can anyone ever love so deep?
A private devotion the world never
Hears even as the citadel in me
echos with gusto so deep and feverishly full of promise.
