Love Reignites

Rather than ending what I started,

An ending with a beginning is what I want,

Time does not permit,

But this does not signal our love to quit.


Once the unheard was heard,

Stored memory of the ears,

The consequences became clear,

Time with you from hours to minutes.


I burrowed to escape and see you,

As if there's no tomorrow,

A failed attempt to make your tangibleness last,

With my long grasping hug.


I don't want to hide in the shadows,

Hoping it would save our love,

We have to rise above,

And open the windows.


I know it is hard,

Especially with boundaries and bias,

I want to leave history behind,

And not become a liar.


Every day I visualise,

The day we are face to face,

We still have lots to settle and chase,

Before we close the space.


The flame reignites,

After blows of wind,

Just keep holding on,

To strengthen the bond.

Love and truth are all that needs any relationship to become an unbreakable bond. Excellent work with the words my dear Li-Jen!

I wish you the best with this "bond"!

My love to your mother for the Mother's Day!

Love the lines, We still have lots to settle and chase, Before we close the space. You do find just the right words to give us a sense of what's going on. You always touch the inner core.
