With You

BY: RAHIMA YASIN, M.B.B.S., BATCH XXI

On starless nights, it is the fire in your eyes that rages and sheds light
And when the storm hits, it is your embrace that keeps me warm and blithe

In your tangible proximity, every moment feels infinite
And yet, fleeing it goes and evanesces far too soon

A mere smile on your face and I am rendered blissfully unraveled
With you, my dreams feel alive and sorrows just an illusion

When my demons escape, it is you who tempers the frenzy in me
Imprisoned in your realm, and never have I felt this free

And as the first rays of sunlight erupt across the sky
Vivid colours impregnated with hope come to life

Your melodious laughter drowns out the sweet voices of nightingales
With you by my side, it’s for a world of wonders that I set sail

With you, the nights and days ardently blend into one another
For you have been to me a bubbling bubble of merriment and joy!

About the author: Maneuvering my way through med school while simultaneously trying to capture hope and a sort of emotional tranquility that one can only find while juggling with words.
