Had not thought (Socha Na Tha)

Had not thought
We’d meet again,
But we did.

Had not thought
We’d laugh again together,
But sure we did.

Had not thought
I’d fight for you,
But I couldn’t stop myself.

Had not thought
I would come so far,
But now wouldn’t stop myself.

Had not thought
You would come so far,
But now I’m there to hold your hand.

Had not thought
We’d really be so crazy,
But now that we’re together, I’m glad.

Credits: The poem has been based on the movie Socha Na Tha, so due credit goes to the movie. Equal credit goes to my wife for making me see the movie. I really couldn’t have missed this one.

Shadow

I am just like you;
only that I am black.
I go away when it’s dark;
in the light, I am back.

Sometimes I’m taller than you;
but sometimes am shorter.
On the land, I like to lie;
like to ripple with the water.

If you do something wrong, I cry.
But you do not notice me.
I feel I want to leave you there,
then go away and be free.

But then I come to face the truth,
that things do not work that way;
that I’ll have to be with you,
always and come what may.
