Strength of Love
There amidst the ocean of sand
and the desert of water,
We had laid the foundation of our life together,
tearing right through earth's heart...
We toiled through hot days and stormy nights
laying the bricks, one by one
tenderly and cautiously,
Replacing the distorted ones by perfect ones
and and slowly built the Tower of Love.
It has been standing there since ages...
high, elegant and confident.
Will it survive the slashes of time?
the swallowing quicksands of the dessert...
the overpowering waves of the sea...
and the killing swords of the living?
or will it erode, drown, choke...
and surrender to the fate?
