Back to the future

Back to the future

One day I dreamt
and saw us old and grey
Having spent our whole life
being content night and day

I saw our years of youth
spent in hope and desire
With bricks of our love
we slowly built our empire

You were as graceful then
as you are today
And I loved you then too
in a very special way

Small, loving gestures
were the source of our joy
Our faith in each other
no power could destroy

The years had gone by
marked by joy and bliss
And life had been beautiful
like a deep, unending kiss

As I awoke from the dream
I felt a bit nostalgic
‘Cos I dreamt of the future
But it felt like past magic!

  1. I went with the words, so invitingly formed, like lyrical chocolate. Love that, ” life had been beautiful, like a deep, unending kiss.” Yes it is, with a lifetime partner. Thanks for sharing this, Manoj. It’s a pleasure.
