I often wonder/
why did
we fall in love /

we have nothing in common?

I love the mountains and you
the sea; /

vegetables disgust me/
while you can literally thrive on them/

I am three and twenty /
but I have
the temperament of a toddler /

you share my age yet sport the wisdom of a saint/

I sleep and wake up when I
 I care not for time /
anyone can set their clocks by you!

Why then did our hearts beat
for each other /

when all
we have in common /

is the uncommon?!

Ah! I see a delicate thread connecting
our souls/

igniting our hearts and that bound us
in love; /

a legacy of pain and hurt!
