"It is us," words I always hear you say,
"Don't worry, we will surely find a way."
Your easy assurance almost palpable;
The pledge of faith - steadfast, impregnable.
"Yes, it is us", I whisper after you;
True to our friendship, I stand too.
Not in undulating sands, nor in thin air,
Grounded in trust, it is honest and fair.
It seeks not others to bruise or harm,
It knows no guile or devilish charm;
Forged on the anvil of loving understanding,
Our bond is steely, our resolve unfaltering.
It is us. Committed, rooted in our belief;
Quiet, knowing companionship, our relief
From the hazards of floundering in inanity
From the perils of slipping into vacuity.
Fears ' whiffs of smoke- vanish; doubts disperse;
Hopes abide, dreads shrink ' their roles in reverse;
Songs adorn lips, smiles intercept tears,
Light-hearted life, the lyrics of love hears.
