You spoke to me of love

 

You spoke to me of love –

how it found you one day

unaware, unprepared…

How it made you otherwise, glad.

 

You told me of its wonders

and pitfalls, the kind whispers

That seemed – nothing then…

just sweet, but not beyond recall.

 

You narrated how, it took you by surprise..

In a world of miseries and tears

the sun could shine, manage to shine…

Bask in cheers, quiet comforts, momentous joys.

In your story, you said

you have not known happiness till then.

And the hoping and believing in that thing –

so abstract, called future.

 

And it would have been real

life-like, even…

In its simplicity and plainness – –

You two were made for each other.

 

Love is not complicated, according to you

It sorts, arranges, filters; it distills

Puts things in their… proper places

Lovers beside each other – love, between. 🙂

Happy, happy New Year to all! Hope 2013 was good to you and 2014 will even be better… 🙂 This was written a good while ago, as part of my  project on romanticism in the Tagalog sites, an attempt am unsure if I could finish, ahaha. Keep your fingers crossed for me, guys… 😉
