You make me smile, you make me weep,
You rule my thoughts, you rob my dreams.
You comfort when I am hurt, you stab me with your words,
You care beyond bounds, you leave me lonesome in a crowd.
You whisper sweetly in my ears, you shout at me so loud,
You comfort my fears, you bring me tears.
Sometimes you are white, sometimes black,
Oh now I know you are shades of grey.
I wonder, I ponder, deep within,
Love is a parody, now I know.
Should I hold your hand or walk away,
Oh heart tell me which way do I go ?
I stumbled a rock and fell in a muddy pool,
You rushed to my rescue and wiped my glasses.
It was then I knew, how much you care,
Sometimes silently hiding behind a bush.
In your anger and rebuke is a love,
I only saw, in my parent’s chide.
Neither an absolute black, nor an unadulterated white,
Sunny at times, shady at others.
Oh love, you are a parody I now know,
But I will be your melody, you should know.
