Of dreams and reality
Softly held hands, gentle embrace
Walking with each other gently
Listening to unsaid words
Relishing each other’s silence.
Holding each other in sadness,
Holding for each other in strife
Guiding each other in dark
This is what true mates are all about.
Your mate wont spend time
Finding your weakness and fault
If one catches his eyes he will tell
Only if that fault needs to be rectified.
Your mate will always know who you are
But he will love you just the way you are
Even if you can’t correct yourself
He will stay as long as you don’t break his heart.
