As we share a cup of steaming tea
O’ so warm, on a rainy day
Train of droplets slithering down
To lock their lips on a glassy pane
Rising up the browny brew,
A film of vapour twirls and swirls
A dance of intimacy that holds us tight
A solitaire of silence in your eyes
Hearts entwined as we trudge
Lonely paths sown with rustling leaves
Blooming thoughts weave dreams of hope
To colour the sky in myriad hues
What spell have you cast on me ?
That keeps me longing for a caress,
Your soothing breath on my crimson cheeks
No dizzying expectations to weigh me down
Nor the burden of tiresome claims
You bring me the gift of absence –
Absence of a judging world !
In you I find peace,
In you I find myself !
You and me, my solitude
We make such a perfect pair !
