ME + YOU = US. Equation for life!

Me, such a small insignificant word

Me, two little symbols, two little letters in all,

Me, a name for a complex being

Me, that's the name to call.

 

Me, the daughter and first born

Me, the precocious child - so I'm told!

Me, knowing right from wrong

Me, with childhood memories to keep and hold.

 

Me, the student, but not straight away

Me, playing the game, the stars mine to reach

Me, the assignments on time, doing okay

Me, the qualified but not ready to teach.

 

Me, such a small insignificant word

Me, two little symbols, two little letters in all,

Me, can be so alone

Me, needing you to call.

 

You, a little longer word

You, three little symbols, three little letters in all,

You, a name for family or friend

You, that's the name to call.

 

You, the parent always there 

You, supporting and feeling proud,

You, showing the love, the care, the trust

You, the parent - always around.

 

You, the husband, handsome and fair

You, offering love, friendship and a life to share,

You, the fan, the critic, the equal

You, the husband always ready to care.

 

You, the children - two sons to cherish

You, the children bringing joy - and tears!

You, 'the boys ' to praise and admire 

You, the children to protect from your fears.

 

You, the friend - so understanding 

You, the friend to share worries and woes,

You, always ready to offer mutual respect 

You, creating a friendship that lasts and grows.

 

Me, no longer a small, insignificant word 

You, no longer three little letters in all,

You and me, that makes US

US a chain so strong - US ready for me - or you - to call.

    I just love the way you wrote this. Starting with 'me', bringing in 'you', with a great conclusion.
