The best is yet to be

 

Let’s turn our heads, and leaf through
The book of life, the sketches we drew
The laughter we shared, the talks too
Helped us spring back, and to live anew
Sleepless nights, strolling hand-in-hand
Childhood lores, those coffees unplanned
Scouring the town, late night drives
Stories unlimited, of our past lives
Singing in unison, romantic tunes
Corrected melodies, verbal prunes
Spinning yarns of dreams, you and I
Adding feathers to wings, flying high
A step at a time, the journey has been
Some lessons end, new ones begin
The road ahead, promises and fears
Years more to go, of smiles and tears
Take my hand, let’s walk united
Dark paths ahead, will get lighted
Grow old with me, the best is yet to be
Love’s worth being in, when you’re with me………..

Let’s turn our heads, and leaf through

The book of life, the sketches we drew

 

The laughter we shared, the talks too

Helped us spring back, and to live anew

 

Sleepless nights, strolling hand-in-hand

Childhood lores, those coffees unplanned

 

Scouring the town, late night drives

Stories unlimited, of our past lives

 

Singing in unison, romantic tunes

Corrected melodies, lyrical prunes

 

Spinning yarns of dreams, you and I

Adding feathers to wings, flying high

 

A step at a time, the journey has been

Some lessons end, new ones begin

 

The road ahead, promises and fears

Years more to go, of smiles and tears

 

Take my hand, let’s walk united

Dark paths ahead, will get lighted

 

Grow old with me, the best is yet to be

Love’s worth being in, when you’re with me………..

    Couldn’t have said it better…….

    The sun and the moon, they are a team.
    Yes, they are! Though it does not seem.

    Too much of the sun , we call for cover
    A whole day of rain, couldn’t get duller.

    So different, and still a team!
    How else do rainbows gleam?

    Their own ways, they seldom forget.
    Sun shines bright, the rain is wet.

    The best part about us being two
    Is I am I and you are you.

    Yet, we as one, together,
    Make the spice of life sweeter.

    Friends we were, a team we shall be,
    Journey together to our destiny.

    Hey Pritesh!

    Lovely…
    In love you see the world beautiful…
    Those moments you cherish with laughter bountiful…
    The tears, the fears, the inhibitions go away…
    Never did sunshine seem so bright in your day!

    God Bless and wish you guys all happiness!
