Yes I Will

The skies were still blue
And the birds were all flying free
The yellow sun dazzled a smile
Shining down on both you and me

Joy seemed to be the only subject
Madness anyway was taking its toll
The incomplete tome ceased to exist
As you and me came together as whole

We walked along the desert of joy
From strangers to companions for life
Without letting me know of it
You helped me let go of the strife

Rockbottom was what I knew
And then I loaded it with more nonsensical crap
You made me take a forever stance
Together we gave the past a perfect wrap

Even the times when I was away
With every breath I sensed your smell
Although miles separated us
You caught me when I slipped and fell

You put an end to every ugly memoir
Removed the flag from the past's crack
You held my face in your palms
Never letting me once look back

Days after days of sharing life
Every puzzle began to fall in place
Slowly, gently holding my hands
You walked with me out of the maze

You didn't try to infuse colors
In my practical life of black and white
You just blended into my pale saga
Never letting go and holding on tight

The life we see now is magical
You freed me of my anger and the pain
You made me win the battle against myself
And did not let my struggles go in vain

I don't know when I fell in love
It was so magical that I couldn't stop to think
Coming to think of it now
I guess I fell for you in the first blink

When you asked me to marry you
Holding a ring in the pleasant summer chill
There was not much to say
Apart from a happy "Yes, I will"

The Incomplete Tome

There are so many things that we don't understand. So many questions we have no answers to. So many incomplete quests lingering in the mind. So many "ifs" and "buts" bordering life. So many incidents waiting to happen. So many answers waiting to be explored. So many secrets buried in the dust. So many keys fitting in the right locks. So many things falling apart. So many people wanting your love. So many memories that need to be forgotten. So many stories that need to be told. So many thoughts that need to be shared.

Life sure is a book, with no answers at the back. Everything and everyone is incomplete. If its complete then there is no point in continuing to live. What else is there to look forward to?

Yeah, there are so many things that we don't understand. We just have to make the best of it, with the limited knowledge we have.
