You And Me - Poem by Khairul Ahsan

You and me,
Passed thirty years and three,
Through Spring and Winter, rain and shine,
Enjoyed our life, barely with a hint of a whine.

You and me,
Like birds on a tree,
Built our nest, with endless zest,
Hardly caring about taking some rest.

You and me,
Went on a spree,
To adorn our sweet little hut,
Not much knowing, what was what!

You and me,
Started a family,
Before realizing what could be,
The meaning of life, entwined, not free!

You and me,
While sipping tea,
Made our plans, like a bumblebee,
To gather pollen for 'our youngs to be'.

You and me,
In the days windy,
Have weathered many storms,
Wearing unpleasant crowns of thorns.

You and me,
Both heartily agree,
That we have lived our eventful life,
Singing a chorus, without much strife.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Dedicated to my wife who bore with me thru' life's twists and turns,
For so many years, without a fuss, taking care of all my concerns.
Couldn't thank her enough for what she has done, from the day one,
It's just a small gesture, to appreciate the long run, with lots of fun!
