Conquest of Contentment

Together we are dynamic

Alone we are different

Together we demand devotion

Our great love story takes action


Connection to the other’s soul is the prize

Together we are energized

Alone we are resilient

While our alliance offers, no lies


What is this mysterious warmth?

Fictitious stories have encrypted themes

Allowing room for self-rule & growth

Separate natures, merging into one team


Your vivid smile continually sways me

Deeper levels of emotional empathy appear

Alone changing our strides

Together hearts ascending with pride


Hold me firmly

Together we are one

Alone our lives go into darkness

Together let us say, we won!


Love together beams

Love together is bright

Love together is brilliance

Never a need to alone take flight
