Proximity - Poem by asma bahrainwala

Let us be this close tonight.
Let us blur out the boundaries;
Let us dissolve the barriers;
Let you and me be us tonight.

So close that I can feel your breath;
So close that our heartbeats blend;
So close that only the touch remains;
So close that you and me become us tonight.

Let us be this close tonight.
Let our love transcend into eternity;
Let only the touch be our identity;
Let you and me be us tonight.

Let us be this close tonight.
Let you and me be us tonight.
