I stared at you endlessly,
Clueless as I can be.
Watching you smile from the other end,
Thoroughly confused and distracted me.
This should've been a team play,
My blurry mind repeated all along.
You erased those thoughts by saying -
“Just smile and sing a song.”
Walking towards you was a feat,
And this bridge a long trip.
Not once did you relent ever,
Never did you change your quip.
And then it struck me,
What you aimed to teach.
You are a true master,
One who’s always out of reach.
I rush over to embrace you,
And surprisingly you do too.
What seemed like a lifelong journey,
Was indeed a fun party you threw.
Some dread you, others even cry,
But you say - “Continue the faith.
Zest is what it takes to overcome,
Not misery and never-ending wraith.”
I hold you close and whisper,
“Hardships were and will always be rife,
But don't you worry because,
You are my one and only life.”
