You And Me

You were born with a cry
I too cried, may be with pain
Than to join voice with you
A great relief, with a sigh
Never I would knew
You would confer me,
Support and sublime life.

Day, Months and Years
You and Me, grown together
You grew inner and out
I grew within myself
Dear to dearer to dearest
Nothing could stop
Strong force of this relation

I relived my childhood and youth with you
I discovered courage with you
I learnt to stand by you
I learnt to forgive and forget
I sang and danced to tunes of life
I enjoyed the warmth of clasped hands
I understood life with you.

There were stories to narrate with fun
Stick to beat with anger
Love to heal with compassion
Preaching to shower with concern
Teaching to bring out the best
Secrets to disclose and share
Forever you and me, together to stride.

You have my blood and traits
Still you are distinct with your persona
You have my kindness and care
Still I too get your tender share
You tumble and get up, holding my hands
Yet sometimes you lend your hands to me
Who are you to me? A friend, then a daughter!

You and Me in this beautiful world,
You and Me, explore in the years to come
You and Me, forever to share and bear
You and Me, look up to each other
You and Me laugh and cry together
You and Me, learn from each other
You and Me, a relation of this era.
