Simple meals and simpler dreams

Flowing its course, the river sung her song
Teasing and brushing vegetation along…
One normal day, the sky sprinkled its dews
And the river hugged them within
Soon, the sky roared in pouring 
And she hugged them all within
No time teasing vegetation, she was
busy caressing the tortured drops…
His home was a song, lilting lilac love
Simple meals and simpler dreams he lived;
One normal day, she walked in crying
He held her palms and heard her saga  
Soon, she shifted base for support
And his life became her crutches
Jilted once, she lost reason to live
He kept aside his life to see her smile…
Days later, the mighty sky settled its core
She turned to see the drops within
They were gone… wondering
why they didn’t wait for her
she continued flowing, when
the vegetation tickled her sides
Flowing its course, the river sung her song
Teasing and brushing vegetation along!
Months later, his now best buddy
flew out and returned with rejuvenated dreams 
He looked within… yet silently helped her soar,
one day she flew out again; he waited for a call…
Two years later, she knocked at his door
‘I need your help’… he heard her out
He cleared her hurdles and waited for a call…
Months later, she knocked yet again
Simple meals and simpler dreams he yearned
Flowing his course, like the river singing her song!
