I walked a few faltering steps,
With you my long lost friend!
As I continued with my journey,
I met you at a nameless bend.
Love that blooms under a tree
And flowers in fresh rosy hues;
A fossil on the memory wall,
Trailing thoughts from the blues
Did I then feel true love’s call?
Or was it a search for the unknown?
The child who loved for love’s sake
Today I stand a woman all grown.
As I stood gazing at your face
I searched for the familiar smile;
Though your eyes twinkled no more,
But time stood still for a while.
The budding love that set ablaze,
Smelted through heat and fire.
Changed many forms and shapes,
To love and hold, to my heart’s desire.
I let some moments blow in the air
And some got hushed in walls confined.
All that remains of true love’s share,
Is laughter and tears forever entwined!
