Love in the Shape of You

Info

I used to think that love should be seen in every line and stanza

That it should be as poetic as possible

I used to think that it is the overpowering emotion of boldness as it enables

I used to be drowned in the intoxicating bragging brands of how it should be

Not until you step in shallows to swim so bravely in deep

It is when you'll realize that yes it is, and it is as valid as every different forms you may think

In fact, it may be as plainest as you nimble evey bit

It is also as calm as the ocean quiets and blue waters still

It is every shape and way to showcase sacrificing
It is the song that plays and the silence as last line ends

It is the pleasure as skins touching and the desire to embrace all imperfects

It is the joy of waking together and the promise 'til the sunset

It is the acquired new interests and the compromise you both oath to live with

It is the strong stand of choices and the gentleness in the coming years to keep

It is when you know the butterflies inside start to fly away

And yet, every time you look in the eyes it is as beautiful as it started

It is the warmth you received in rainy days and the same breeze you give as the sun thirsts

It is the every losing fight in TV channels and commercial breaks and who to deal with the dishes

It is in asking how your day went or how do you like your egg

It is in respect of equal rights and the trust even with the receipts

It is the assurance in times of doubt and the things to be dealt before bed

It is the progressing cooking skills after years of training

It is memorising the usuals at the unspoken agreements

It is in listening and the acceptance, no wonder why it is easy to tell what is in the heart

It is in small massages and pain killer patches, the lunch boxes and the sweet notes clipped on top

More than perfect coffee blend but the taste bud adjustments and the compliments

It is in every speechless occasions and we both know the meaning of that

I used to think that I know these things too well that I am able to recognize but then

It is the choice to learn, to adjust and to keep working together and live with this choice whatever.

What didn't happen was really not meant

Kudos to changing seasons

That 20 seconds could have saved me

Tick-tock-tick-tock, and after that it was gone
