YOU AND I

YOU AND I

If the deep sea could forget you,
You'd stay evermore in the depth of my heart.

If the shining stars could forsake you,
You'd remain the sights in Temple of my eyes.

If the mammoth mountain could efface you,
You'd remain the blood that flows through my veins.

You and I are tied together with Elixir of Love,
You are the sprinkler, whereas I am the tree.

If I awake in a sunlit day without you,
If I spend the moonlit night alone,

My branches would be weary, and my leaves would be bland.
My root would be insipid, and my fruit would be vapid.

If the storm of life could smack me down,
You'd be the safest abode I'd abide.

If the moments of blue could shroud me in dreary cloud,
You'd be the nonchalant breeze I'd run to.

If the hands of time could turn my friends to foes,
You'd be the only angel I'd seek her wings of rapport.

You and I are tied together with Elixir of Love,
You are the sprinkler, whereas I am the tree.

If I awake in a sunlit day without you,
If I spend the moonlit night alone,

My branches would be weary, and my leaves would be bland.
My root would be insipid, and my fruit would be vapid.

    Beautiful poem !

  • L. B. Mek

    'If the mammoth mountain could efface you,
    You'd remain the blood that flows through my veins.'
    (pulse sizzling, like the lava of passion
    you imbue into each line
    of this unashamedly, wholehearted dedication..
    a part of me, naturally
    envies the object of your affection
    who instilled such inspiration
    into that pooling ink of love
    in your heart)..
    a beautifully worded, dedication
    thanks for sharing
    'my fruit would be vapid'
    what an acute phrasing
    (sans of love
    vapid of heart,)
    indeed
