…. Cherish your struggle together
TOGETHER … BUT NOT MADE FOR EACH OTHER
In the bygones of life I find …
… We sacrificed so much … to be together,
But soon I realised we were not made for each other.
How well we began together,
Only to learn midway,
That we were not made for each other.
Every criss-cross of life we treaded together,
Every sorrow and happiness we faced together,
In those steep ups … and slimy slides of life we held together,
But then again I thought we were not made for each other,
Each step in life, we took together,
Every deed, and misdeed if any, we enacted together,
Knowing fully well we were not made for each other,
We saw each wrinkle lining up in us together,
And, also, each strand greying in us together,
Yet, I always thought we were not made for each other.
One day we noticed our walk was slowing,
And another day we saw our shoulders were drooping,
Yet we kept walking together,
But even then I thought we were not made for each other,
And then one day,
In my dying moments when we were together,
I saw we were not only together but also made for each other,
But by then it was late,
Because our physical togetherness was over.
Life is a drag if you wish to live in dissensions and a melody if you adopt togetherness.
