Whenever someone placed in front of me, the very inevitable topic of destiny,
I would dismissively put it aside, reaffirming that it was just not my line of thinking
Oh but why does life have its way of thrusting it’s immenseness on me?
When I thought all was lost, I started seeing a flicker of hope in the densest forests
Having led a life where everything was distinguished as black and white
I began venturing into grey areas that just kept on getting darker
Trying to find some bread for my soul, I ended up feeding the fear instead
Reaching for something higher only ended up speeding my descent into oblivion
It took not one, but two attempts to break the vicious cycle I had confined myself to
When I was finally free, I decided to restart with a fresh outlook of transparency
The burden feeling substantially lighter I decided to delve into deeper questions
Why this and why now? Was this is a test I had to endure for eternity?
Was this is redemption for my past misgivings or was it just life calling out to me?
What this was I could not begin to describe
All I knew was that I had found my match
The dew to my mornings, the burning flame to my nights
I had found the one who completed me, the one who would take me all the way
Oh sweet love, let thy mystical spark always be alive
The passion that you have reignited, may it never die
Because there is one thing if nothing else, that I have realised
There is hope for the bitter rest of us
There is life beyond despair
There is pleasure beyond pain
This I have realised alas!
And now all I ask of you is,
Be mine forever and for always, my eternal valentine
And I shall be here just as always…
-Your eternal valentine
