Your Gift

Across the flickering light,
Your eyes smiled at me.
Your hands caressed mine
And your body edged closer.

All this while
You told me that love is an illusion
And how it is not possible for you to accept or give it,
Because of its temporary nature.

So I’ve built you an illusion.

I’ve nurtured it deep within me,
Feeding it on understanding and compassion.

Now it is strong enough.

So I have wrapped it up
In a box
And sealed it.

Today I give you this “illusion”
(in which you do not believe).

I can only hope that you accept it.

Your Gift
