Me and you

by Anushka Praveen (15)
City Montessori, Lucknow

You hide behind your feelings,
And keep the truth locked away,
But there is so much said,
In the things you don’t say.

You innocently tell me
Our time has come and gone,
And that we can’t go back.
But I don’t believe it,
And this time you’re wrong.

The distance you put between us
Is nothing more than time lost;
A place for your feelings to hide,
Yet I can hear the love in your voice,
Each time we talk.

My patience has no end,
When it comes to loving you,
And I will wait a lifetime,
For you to see the truth.

Real love doesn’t go away,
It doesn’t fade into the past,
It goes on forever,
And always finds its way back.

I will wait a lifetime for you,
Because you are my soul,
And behind all of your doubt,
I know you can’t let go.

You are my soul,
And I am yours, too.
If two people were ever meant to be,
It’s me and you.
