Eternity.

lovers-under-a-tree

One man and One woman,

hand in hand,

eye to eye,

singing to each other,

that silent lullaby,

of a love hard to deny.

~

From the drowsing evening,

 Through the chilly night,

they sit their intertwined,

Holding on tight.

~

Tracing each other’s skin,

With the brush of those soft, lean fingers,

Occasionally passing steams of warm breath,

surrendering to winters.

~

Supposed lovers, exuberant and gay,

But the people couldn’t accept, a prince and a maid,

Very soon they ran away,

Couldn’t watch their love fall,

how could they?

~

Leaves fall down swaying in the wind,

from the romantic tamarind,

Like flowers in a wedding,

“This is it,” he said,

The beginning of a new ending.
