I will hold your hand tight,
And walk by your side.
I shall not ask where we head,
Does it even matter?
I may talk too much on the way,
But if I do, be assured that all’s well.
I talk when I’m happy.
It’s when I fall silent that you must worry.
I may ask hundreds of questions,
Sometimes even before you have answered the previous one.
It’s my inquisitiveness you see,
I want to understand you inside out.
I shall tell you when I’m tired,
When my feet give in.
Wait for me to take some rest,
Or keep walking without me. I shall join in.
And yes, let me know when it is me you are tired of.
I shall not judge you.
I shall disappear, only to meet you again,
In the same place, asking the same questions,
Starting from where I had left last time.
Remember – in our quest for each other,
There are no shoulds and musts.
It’s just you, me and our desire to be together.
Together as we walk, and even in our decision to part.
