U: Us

Image Source

I thought I had got the picture right
I worked hard on getting the correct shade
You came along at the perfect time
Ensuring that the colors never fade

As I look back across the years
I can only remember life with you
You were the partner I was looking for
You are my dream that came true

I did not need anyone else
You were everything to me
A friend, a lover and a soul mate
Beyond you my eyes couldn't see

Crowds began to repel me
Everyplace I was searching for your face
With you everything seemed so nice
But without you I was lost in a maze

It was just you and me every where
Together we faced and battled it all
At times I kept your spirits up
And at times you prevented my fall

Holding hands we came a long way
Everybody wanted to break us apart
The poor souls did not know that
We were strongly connected in the heart

Time and again challenges we faced
We saw the true colors of everyone around
We learnt the lesson in a hard way
It is only us until we reach the ground

Everything is uncomplicated this way
It is all sorted without any fuss
I still do not need any body else
Life is complete when it is just us

  1. I am amazed with this work, this is so soulful. The last 2 lines sum it up for the love they have.


  2. Holding hands we came a long way
    Everybody wanted to break us apart
    The poor souls did not know that
    We were strongly connected in the heart
