Of dreams and reality
Soft breeze blowing teasingly
Kissing her soft face brazenly
He was lying on her lap
Gazing into those dark eyes.
Gently he clutched a lock of her hair
His fingers playing with it
He softly asked her why does she loves
A person as ugly as a demon so much!
She softly lowered her beautiful face
Upon his face glowing with love
Her voice was soft as summer wren
Tenderly she said for he deserves!
They have been shadow and body
Since their very childhood
He has been her first friend
He easily became her first love.
She added, love looks for myriad things
When heart and souls are not bonded;
But when two hearts and souls are bonded
They don’t care for anything else, ever.
