Thank You My Sweetheart

a poem by Tanushree Nair

It’s been quite a while
since I forced myself to smile
it now comes quite naturally
and all the hassles seem so silly
b’cos I have you to believe in
and take me away from reality
to the land of my dreams.

You never left my side
even in the darkest of hues
and even when the trickle
became a deluge
you were there by my side
to hold me, to let me know
I was safe.
