25 Years Of Courtship - Poem by Nick Kler

How many incidents
How many thoughts0
Vividly covered
In this
25 years of 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 it all
Life was happening
And we forgot of the fight
We forgot of our start

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

All that is left now
History that goes back
When I was young and naïve
Still learning to face
The brutal ways of this world

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

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

How could we have known?
That our fates were heavily disguised
Planning 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 of our life
together

Through thick and thin
Through obligations and mistakes
Through Love and hate
We were to fulfill every dream
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 up everything in its path
Leaving a beautiful fiery skyline
