What If…

If that moment had been
Delayed, by just that
Infinitesimal second;
I know, I would have seen you.

If that plea had been
Received, just that bit
More openly, all that unspoken
Pain, and questions…

You know, I would have been
A better human.

If my hand had reached out
And held on to yours-
Perhaps you’d have regained
Your footing; and then, for sure
I know, we’d have been blessed.

Sadly, all I can say now is-

What If…

I surprise
with the
strength of
the sureness
of believing
in the wonder
of you.
as you do
me and you
in entwined
a soul
split in
with me
with you
in love and
in life
with one
till always

and some.

You Are…

You are to me
that soft
that merges
sky and sea
and land
with no horizon;
leading me
on in a continuum
of love.
Only love.

You are to me
the sunlight
sparkling off
gentle waves
in a diamond-
burst of
lightening each
dark corner of
my heart.

You are to me
the gold
at the end of
the rainbow
of my love.

Is that the ultimate aim?

Does life culminate,
climax, to explode
into the loud pandemonium

of a breathless euphoria?

The sun shines warmly
accepting its innate loss;

gloriously, gratefully almost
giving away heat.

I feel a loss, but feel again
Life’s paradoxes balance.
While i realise a pain
I know of added happiness.

Happiness and euphoria
become synonymous,
after a while of give and take.

For emotions starved
a pinch of happiness is
a pinch of euphoria.
