Where one look in the eyes
Can move the grounds below us
When one moment of contact
Gives a lifetime of strength
When one smile on each other’s face can make us forget
Every other dark thing in the world and see only the light
In each other’s eyes
Now when we know that we are in love
The grass seems greener on our own side
And that small house appears bigger to me, even though he still complains a little
But we both consider it more spacious than those palaces
Which people we ‘knew’ now own.
Those people who never believed us
Who said we were too different to be together
Those who ran behind their perfect matches
Well everything that seems perfect is not beautiful
And everything that’s amazing is not perfect
We find our homes in each other!
Moreover, we live where we stay
Well for the others,
They keep moving towards shinier things, even losing each other in between
For a while, or so
Maybe coming back together in the end
They say, “all’s well that ends well”
But we people, we believe in the journey that we make together
Because we can’t pass a day without that ‘ordinary’ dinner of ours, as they frame it
At times burnt! At times over salty
But to us, tastes just fine
Since it’s made up of care and stinks of love.
And if you ask me about the precious items I own?
His first gift to me was a lead pencil and since then I have kept it safely in my closet.
So close to me,
I didn’t even use it; afraid the lead might get over or maybe just break you know?
As if it wasn’t lead, as if it was Gold
We didn’t even realize and love turned us into Alchemists!
