a poem by Tanya Mirchandani

I look back at the months behind
I look at the future before us
The way is clear, the light is bright
The darkness is behind us

The time we have to spend our lives
The love that binds us together
You are mine and I am yours
Our love will last forever

I feel you, always by my side
And feel your warmth around me
Whatever I do, wherever I go
You are always with me

My sweetest love, my only love
What would I be without you
The miles that keep us apart for now
Only makes my love grow stronger

I sit here late into the night
And dream of our future together
Of love and joy, tears and laughter
And I smile.

Love is you and love is me
Love is a prison and love is free
Love’s what’s there when you are away from me.
