the sea washes you away

Chapter Text

 

 

I met you on a summer day,
It was hot, scorching but lovely,
The sea washed you to the shore,
Painted in red, sparkling in pale white,
Then I saw you,
And to me, it was a sign,
Maybe- you are forever.

I met you on a summer day,
The sky was blue with thin, fleeting clouds,
I was seconds away from death,
But you pulled me close and breathed in life,
And then I saw you,
And to me, it was a sign,
Maybe- I was always meant to love you.

I could not ask for more,
With you, happiness was more than smiles and laughs,
In sadness and anger, I found more reasons to love,
It was- is always there,
This feeling in my chest,
It is always for you,
And it is enough. 

I could not ask for more,
With you, freedom was something that filled me up,
In late-night movies and failed cooking attempts,
It was- is always there,
This flower in my chest,
Blooms for you, only because of you,
And I hope it is enough.

Never would I have thought that you could mean so much,
So I was scared of losing,
I was afraid of hurting,
I have lost so many things,
I could not give you up too,
But you were there to hold my hand,
In your smile, your sparkling eyes, I knew- always.

Never would I have thought that you could mean so much,
So I was scared of letting go,
I was afraid of myself,
I have lost my sanity,
I could not give you up too,
But you were there to hug me near,
In your silence, your fond eyes, I knew- endlessly.

Do not let me go,
Hold me down if that is so,
Tell me sweet lies, fruitful promises,
I will not wander elsewhere, I swear,
For this sea will be my witness,
For love in my heart is for you and no one else.

Do not let me go,
Hug me tight and cure my sorrow,
Tell me sweet promises, ardent whispers,
I want to stare into your eyes forever- that beautiful lustre,
For this sea will never wash us away,
For this sea will pull us closer, never astray. 

("Tian! Where is the toothbrush?")

 

("I have already packed them, Phu. We are all set and ready!")

 

("Oh, thank you so much! Let's go! No time to waste! We can still catch the sunset if we go now!")

 

("Let's go!")

 

 

To Phupha and Tian, love might not always be beautiful, but it is constant, always, worthwhile, indefinite
