Submissions by Maldivian poets for our poetry segment
You are my world, my heartfelt concern
To you who has shown me that brighter days exist,
To you who has shown me that love is beautiful,
As the sunrises and shines to the colors of your eyes,
To the sparkles in your aura that takes my breath away.
I had not committed to tie this string,
But your love for me has made it into an eternal bond,
I can finally be at peace, Be my own self.
My fears and despairs, the yearns and cries
It was not futile as it has brought us close,
More than I imagined
More than I had ever expected,
Almost as if a dream has come true.
This journey has taught me to let things go
Be it my emotions or the flow I wanted to keep
Nothing stays the same and you have to agree
Like the waves at the shoreside that never ceases
Always and forever bringing in new tides
We will keep evolving and stand by the changes we’ve yet to conquer
Honey, with you by my side, even the storms feels like peace.
