Withstanding jointly

Darling, you are nearby me,

In my hindrances and all my quirks,

In my experience, my happenings

So why do I go distant from you?

I’ve seen you in my white and blues,

Amazingly flaunting your gashes,

Like winters showing off the snow.

Festoon in all the spots,

In your dwell and all my blocks,

Elegantly falling off from the sky.

You are like those pretty flames,

In my cottage, my fireplace.

Keeping me warm and cosy all the time.

Optimistic and calmer self,

I surmise you are my mate, sipping wine.

Withstand, we’ll build a paradise,

With the colour brown in your eyes.

Colouring it with ocean brine, deep inside.
