It was a journey we began, hand in hand; my hand safe in yours. I knew you would lead me through all the rough paths, I trusted the strength in your shoulders that I could lean on. And, oh, what a journey it was! Full of ups and downs. More ups than downs. But, we were together. Every turn brought along with it a new challenge; every step a new hurdle. And, we faced it with every ounce of strength we knew we could muster. We were a team, after all - you and I.
But, today, after having come a long way, having braved each storm, endured every difficulty life threw at us, we find ourselves struggling to walk together! Why do I feel my hand slipping out of yours? Why don't I find that warmth, which I did when we started off? Why do your feet walk away from mine? Is it our love that has gone weak with time, or is it life, that intends something we never imagined?
Today, I look into the distance, I see two separate entities: YOU and I. Why can't I see 'US'? Have we drifted away along with time? Is it time for departure from 'our' land to places unknown, where the winds carry us?
My fingers itch to feel yours, intertwined in them. My heartbeat yearns to beat in rhythm with yours; my breath pines for the warmth of yours.
What does our future hold in store for us? I struggle to find the answers. But, until I do, may I lean on your shoulder as I wait ?
