25 Years Of Courtship - Poem by Nick Kler

How many incidents
how many thoughts
must have been
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 have pulled us down

In the midst of all this
life was happening
and we forgot of the fight
we forgot of our start

A few unsought words
finally shattered
Love that we made 'Ours'
ego became the master
of both of us to see

All that is left
Is history that goes back
when I was young and naïve
still learning to face
the brutal ways of this life

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 too
so, we merged them together
and set out to live this life

How could we have known?
our fates were heavily disguised
planning a totally different future
and had it inscribed

Without even thinking twice
without ever drawing a plan
we started upon this journey
Spending 25 years of our lives
together as one

Through thick and through thin
through obligations and through mistakes
through Love and through hate
we were to fulfill every promise
together and forever!

I guess, forever came too soon
there was nothing that we could do
Bound by egos and emotions
striking 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
