I would call you a sister (brother/lover/friend)
But I have no inkling of how you will react
So, I would call you my soulmate
I definitely don’t deserve to have a place in your heart
But I know you deserve to be the happiest person in this world
Happiest daughter, wife, sister, brother – The happiest (wo)man
Whereas many known faces drop by, come and hurl something
Talk to you with a view to talk about it to someone else
you always turn up because you have something beautiful to share.
In the world alarmingly relying on the facade and managing it
In the world where I have no faith in relationships
You hold my hand and sit quietly by my side with nothing to reject or rebuke
In the world that cannot tolerate your smile and giggles
You teach us that even anger is right, a tool to understand the self
But above all, you whip round your magic wand and pull me up from my pitch dark abyss.
setting it alight like a wildfire
And I have these ashes like a burned incense
I feel awfully fortunate and indebted to have this privilege, I doubt, I deserve.
But, I’m just a human
A work in progress.
