To My Love

If you were not there

I might have been nowhere

I loved you a lot

But lost you at last

For no fault of mine

I consider it an act divine

We loved without lust

We didn’t grumble about it much

We learned

How love rises ambition

How loves teaches submission

How love ennobles

How divine light kindles.

Had you not come in my life

I would have been half dead

I would have been half alive

I would have no courage

I would have no face for this life

I wouldn’t have known how to accept defeat

I wouldn’t have known how to accept beatings

Yet keep my head high

Yet strive, in storms of misfortune

Yet live to remain alive

For all the failure that came in my way

I felt the destination is far away

I felt the destination is far away

Love taught me sacrifice

Not possession at any price

Not possession at any price.
