What is this invisible bon that ties
Two strangers together from miles apart
Who never met each other, may never will
What builds this immense faith and affection?
All they long is for each other’s touch
Through mails, smses or rare phone-calls
Yet their hearts are bonded together
They smile, quarrel, cry for this bond.
It says a beautiful truth
When love speaks
Vision, body, mind vanish
Only two hearts and soul remain.
It also says all we look for is love
When that is offered everything is forgotten
We always trust the giver of love
This trust remains unless it’s shattered.
