In the midst of a crowd
And imprisoned behind the bars of indifference
You still reached out your heart to me
Through the tiny windows of your eyes

And in that look, that one look,
I caught hold,
swearing I wouldn’t let go
Till I’d traced it to its source

At the other end of that glance,
What I found,
Tied me to you
Profoundly, irrevocably

But know this,
My memories of freedom come with me
And someday they’ll be yours too
And till then, the dream of wings will carry me out

You with me.
Because, like I said,
I won’t let go
Irrevocably, profoundly

      1. Precisely! And if each partner evolved with a reasonable degree of individuality, what are the odds that the new persons coming up will still be as compatible with each other as once made-for-each-other couple?

        1. @Aniket: Two things. Firstly, if what drew them together was strong enough, it should have solid ground to be able to build on for the rest of their lives. Secondly, as two people get together and draw closer, they start to influence each other, they evolve in ways that will mutually benefit the relationship. Of course it doesn’t always happen that way and I think in most of those cases, the problem can be traced back to one of these two things.

  1. @Ideasmith – Why is it that despite there being words such as irrevocable, or inexorable, people still express doubt as to the longevity of a tie as profound as the one you have described?
