Valentine Day – 14th Feb, 2022
Starting afresh, I met and loved again
This time, I pray for the best after my worst days
Like a rose flower cuddled with white ribbon,
She is wrapped in gracefulness and beauty
My heart leaps and beats for her
We shared and laughed for a while
In person and through the phone,
But the closeness grew and grew into love
Known each other just for a while
But It seemed like one year,
The longing for each other was real
We felt and admitted it
Can we walk through life’s road holding hands together?
I think we can, what about you?
Can we share happiness and sadness together?
Yes, we can, what do you think?
Can we protect each other and succeed together?
I believe we can, what about you?
Can we share the worst experiences with sincerity and trust?
I think we can, what do you think?
As we get to know each other,
Ponder on these questions,
Hold them in your hearts
And your dreams will become clear
I cannot promise you the sun
but I can help you shine
I cannot take you to the moon
but I can share everything with you
and make your sadness go away
I cannot give you the world
but I can walk through life’s thorns together with you
Clasped hand in hand,
Let’s walk the path of love
Loving and caring for each other
Not minding what anyone says
Caring less what life throws at us
