We’ve had unspoken utterances
And we’ve said those 3 words too
Silent fights and lonely nights
And I’ve read your eyes like a book
My possession still bears the ambigram
where two names read just the same.
So I want to say to you
Let’s fall in love all over again…

My bedroom mirror stares at me

And I can see your face in there
It’s been a while since I’ve kissed your arm
And a while that you’ve tidied my hair
This time I want you to sing a different song
When I lie in your arms at the end of day
And so I want to say to you
Let’s fall in love all over again…

Let’s make another new beginning
Another fresh story we can weave
I know you’ll say it isn’t possible
“We’ve fallen in love too deep”
But I want to feel the way I did
The first time you held me near
So I want to say to you
Let’s fall in love once again my dear…

P.S. For the first time in my life I wrote 3 drafts for this poem. Generally I get it right in one go. And somehow I’m still not convinced but I ran out of patience…
