Poem: Other Half (My Sacred Vow)

You kiss my shoulder saying everything will be all right
I look ahead, unconvincingly and you take my hand
I’ve been hurt before, wound of open sore taking time
You say let them heal slowly, I will be at your side

I don’t expect you to be so perfect
You have paid your dues long ago
In between the penumbra of reality
I don’t believe but I see us in your eyes

You will come to me when entanglement hits the fences
I don’t mean to get you into trouble, yet you never blame
or calling me dumb, stupid, fool, an idiot –
You listen as I speak, never cut-in, patiently waiting

I don’t think I will find somebody like you
The world has made the one and only. You are for me.
For we are one. I am blessed. Quietly I pray. No proclamation
I thank Him for bringing us together

Never have I taken you
for granted
Even I haven’t been on
the rockiest road
I will never do that
We have seen the worst
We’ve been played before
Now let us bring out
our very best
Forever and always
