As we stand through time (Tetracty & Eintou)

by Meena Krish   Aug 20, 2019

we are
stems apart
rumor and spite
was not able to pierce the foundation
we struggled to build, for the roots of love
runs deep into
my soil with
tears and

Let this
year and lots more
flourish and bloom bundles
of memories and laughter of
you, me and us as we
stand together
through time

    Dear Meena, what a beautiful testament and promise to stand together, to honor and keep those roots of love and to know you have such a firm foundation. <3
