The Differences

The Differences

He always knew that!
That they were different.

They thought differently.
They felt differently.
They liked different things.
Different desires. Different dreams.

They had different experience.
And strong difference of opinions.

They came from different worlds.
They used different words,
Even when they felt something very similar.
They spoke different languages.
And felt like they belong to different ages.

He never understood,
Why they were together,
With not a single common factor.

He wondered and thought a lot,
Perhaps that was the way he was taught.

But she never thought about it,
Never cared or worried a bit.

Because her thoughts were so pure -
They might be different,
But not opposite, for sure!

And these two were different things.

It was fine, she thought,
Having differences somewhat.

As far as they didn't oppose each other,
They could stay together
And love each other... forever.

Do you know someone like them?
Or don't you think YOU could be them?
