A Walk into the Woods

THEME: Love and Romance
 
There was hardly any meaning
Once you came, you were the beginning.
What is life without you?
A walk into the woods is all I ask of you.

See that vista? It is too long.
Stand by me, make it go by soon.
What is life without you?
A walk into the woods is all I ask of you.

They were always there, the beasts.
Did you just drive them away?
What is life without you?
A walk into the woods is all I ask of you.

Those dreams, those nightmares
And the ferocity of the violent waves
Have you captured them too?
They badger me no more
What is life without you?
A walk into the woods is all I ask of you.

The gifts of life would entice me
Did you just redefine them?
Do they seem more beautiful?
Just what did you do?
What is life without you?
A walk into the woods is all I ask of you.

The trees seem greener, the skies bluer,
Did you paint them too?
Come with be, stay by my side
Please say you’d like to.

What is life without you?
A walk into the woods is all I ask of you.
What is life without you?
A walk into the woods is all I ask of you.
 
 
 But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you.

Love one another but make not a bond of love:
let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

~ Gibran

  2. Dear Punam:Thanks so much for coming by my blog and leaving your insights. Truly appreciated.About the poem: You have depicted two sides of love beautifully. While your verse talks of being together, Gibran's verse talks of giving space. Knitting both these parts makes the emotion of love quite beautiful.I have always loved these sayings of Gibran. His works never fail to move me. You have to read the love letters he wrote to Mary. Truly beautiful.Joy always,Susan
