25 years of courtship


How many incidents
How many thought
Vividly covered in this
25 years of our courtship
More than my age
When we started
No country, no law
No distance or brawl
Could ever pull us down

In the midst of all this
Life was happening
And we forgot of the fights
We forgot of our start

It was finally shattered
Just by a few unsought words
Ego became the master
Of both our worlds

All that is left now
Is history that goes back
When I was young and naïve
Still learning to face
This brutal world indeed

I was hardly of a legal age
When we met, I just looked tough
Hardly knowing your name
Fire of ambition and sublimity
Was running high into the havens
Ready to conquer this world
Without a penny to our name

You had some plans
And I had some
So we merged each of them
And set out to live this life

How could we have known?
That our fates are heavily disguised
Planned a totally different future
And had it inscribed

Without ever giving a hunch
Without ever drawing a plan
We started out upon this journey
Spending 25 years together

Through thick and thin
Through obligations and mistakes
Through Love and hate
We were to fulfill those dreams
Together and forever!

I guess, forever came too soon
There was nothing that we could do
Bound by our egos and emotions
Just by a single match
It all came crumbling down
25 years of our past
Burnt down into ashes of time

Lighting everything in its path
It left a beautiful burning skyline

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
