Think how all things
Come in pairs of two
There’s male and female
There’s sadness and happiness
For every pain there’s a cure
For every impure there’s a pure
All things come in pairs of two
Just like for me there’s only you

A sun during the day turns to night’s moon
As your face shines my day like sun at noon
The dust of the day turns to night’s stars
As your smiley teeth shine like neon of bars

I wish there were twenty four months a year
Twelve for humanity and twelve only for us
A year to wonder in your pretty face
And a year to thank God for his grace

Imagine there’s a pair of January
We would celebrate every year twice
How would it feel doing so very nice?
What about having a double February
One for me hiding within your warm arms
And one for you holding me within yours
If there were two springs in two marses
Roses would rise in the first spring
So I can collect them for you in the second

A river would eventually hit a given sea
As your eyes give me sight and make me see
The warmth of the day turns to night’s breeze
As your presence by my side makes me breathe

If there were two happy Easters with two Aprils
One for Jesus’s resurrection and one for our love
Beneath the warm clouds and lovely birds of two mays
We do look forward to get lost in a golden corn maze
What if we live two summers under Junesโ€™ angels?
One to wait waves to hit so I can tell about us in the second
We would have enjoyed two Julies under clear sky above
Watching the sun burning twice of jealousy from your shine
Living this way is like living twice where you are mine

A pregnant lady would sooner or later give birth
As your kiss brought me to life from ashes again
The seconds in a clock turns to become hours
As you turned my life from only mine to ours

With two Augusts a year the adventure would multiply
With you by my side they would rush like moments pass by
The horizon would appear by two autumns in two Septembers
Loving one another under the fallen leaves of two Octobers
Holding onto each otherโ€™s under the rain drop of two Novembers
Waiting to celebrate the holy Christmas once in every December
Just imagine you and I creating our own calendar and timing
Living everything twice, loving and in life we’d be rhyming

Everything in life our dear lord created it in pairs of two
Just like you and me before we meet I was me & you were you
A pair of persons on this planet, strangers we have walked
But the destiny we never knew about put us across each other
Since that day we met I thank God for EVERYTHING that is you
Let things in life stay in pairs of two and let us be ONE
After two months together I can only wish
To keep on holding you forever and ever
After two months together I can only promise you
To always keep on loving you forever and ever.





One thought on “Pairs of One”

  1. Hey Hani I was overwhelmed by reading your poem. Like always your poems are always a great read. I wander how you write so well, you poems speak so much and you always make sure to give your best in presenting the words. I am really running out of words to express my appreciation. ๐Ÿ™‚ I thoroughly enjoyed Pairs of one, and am impressed with your innovative thinking like how you have inherited all twelve months in this one beautiful piece. Each and every line was awesome but some lines were extraordinary like ‘The seconds in a clock turns to become hours as you turned my life from only mine to ours’. It was so heart touching. ๐Ÿ™‚ Please do share more such poems with us. ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you. ๐Ÿ™‚
