The lights have escaped so narrowly,
Into a play of diminishing luminance,
Paved way for a brilliant display
Of darker shades of burning red
When the hues have dissolved gracefully
Into the question that we raise now...
The sun was an elegant mystery
Where we basked in it's ultimate prime,
Those were the days of pure enjoyment
Love and like mixed equally radiant,
To paint pictures so compelling then
In that broad canvas of our minds...
The art was conceived by our lives
Magnificent strokes lit that work,
We set a voyage to the horizon
Seeking excitement, gaiety and so...
Framed by our splendid friendship,
People stared at our vigorous unity...
Gleamed out of energy and colour,
That wholesomeness we cherished
Over those days of spotlight and stars
Pierced every trace of darkness in us
Gave birth to the glorified versions
Of us and our aspirations cemented....
The sunshine and warmth a luxury
Were we greeted our selfless greed
To immerse in moments effervescent
And it paid of undoubtedly so well
That we forgot time and existence ours
Went back to total bliss and exuberance.
Worth living was every second of it
Dreaming reliving those moments again
We stare at the fading colours
Hiding our needy thoughts and words
Somewhere between the fluffy clouds
Declining their journey into an infinity.
Promised now and often many a time,
To keep those memories ever so safe
Where the waters brush the shore
Our intentions leave footprints many
Along the soothing sands we straddled
Unity stands tall enjoying the caresses...
That view is so briskly breathtaking
We get into reminiscing so helplessly
Offering gloom to that fading picture
Slowly from the white wide canvas
Promised ever so enchantingly there
That we'll sink into the glow everyday...
