You And Me Poem by Khairul Ahsan

You And Me

Rating: 4.6


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,
Passed days windy,
Have weathered many storms,
That came in many forms.

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!

I have done away with that 'wearing unpleasant crown of thorns'! :) Edited the second last stanza slightly. Hope it meets your hearty acceptance now. :)

A most wonderful and exemplary poem. So sweet and real and at the same time, so filled with true and sincere happiness, so hard to find. Written with such sincerity, love and heart, the poem describes the type of love and life that so many would love to have but have not. What a joyful and unforgettable poem! Thank you so much!

A wonderful tribute and a timeless gift to a wonderful woman who never ceases to to love, care and respect the man whom she chose to be with in sickness and in health. A beautiful story of love embedded with the wonderful attributes which make a strong relationship that can conquer whatever storms in life.
