As I unheld the finger of destiny's wind,
Gracefully I landed in the river of your love
Partly immersed partly afloat
I wondered…what, why and how?

A plain feather I was, as plain as a crow
But you splashed myriad hues on me
The parrot wept, the peacock raised its eyebrow
And the butterfly's flight lost its glee.

We sang, we danced, we laughed and cried together
And with you I discovered Life's essence
The sun, the moon and the stars didn't bother
Though we were oblivious to their presence

But I'm not yours nor you mine
For the paths will always diverge
And my lips will have to part from thine
The feather will be lost in the storm surge.

Yet I know, despite all my fears,
That I will forever be with you
That every drop of your river tastes of my tears
And in all my hues forever are you…
