I am no longer who I used to be,
Can you get familiar with the new me?
I no longer freestyle unending to instrumentals,
I no longer read the books you and I were always competing over.
I no longer write poems.
Will you get familiar with the new me?
This is not just growth, it’s evolution, transformation.
Yet, in all these, I still feel as though you were here.
In all those quiet moments of respite,
In all those nights of endless tears,
All those times of sombre feelings,
I always felt as though you were here.
Maybe you were, or maybe not, but in my mind you were.
So, I say, you’ll never be alone.
It you travel to the ends of the earth, I’ll be right there with you.
If you come to the end of yourself, and its like there’s nothing else you can do, I’ll be there with you.
When everyone turns their backs on you and its just you against the world, I’ll be there with you.
When the rain falls, when the sun shines, when the sky falls, when the earth splits into two, I’ll be there with you.
For my love is serene and pure.
For my love is free of crease.
For my love is full of bliss.
For my love is deep.
My love is beyond human imagination, extraordinary, an anomaly.
