Spring and Fall

Spring came and went, and so did fall

Nothing and no one could stop my crawl

And here I am, alone on this bend

Only one more can join me here, my friend

A friend that needs no words, to read me

No ifs and buts, no begging, no plea

Whose aura fills my days, my soul

The one to complete me, to make me whole,Β 

The one whom I need and who needs me

My fountain of delight, my source of glee

Just he and I fill all my world

In a bat of an eye, all dreams unfurled

Spring still comes and goes and so does fall

But I no longer need to crawl……..

The credit for this verse goes to Sandeep, who inspired it……it’s a translation of his thoughts stated on:

    Lovely poem Prits. Remembers me my youth, by now, much too far away in the past, but still sheltered in my hart.
