Why leave the matters of heart to reason?

Why should we live separately?
Why not live in embrace?
Why allow the time to slip by?
Let’s live at our own pace.

It’s time we come near and check out,
Who we are, what we are.
It’s nothing but a point of view;
Why view it from afar?

Let both of us tread the same path,
Let us feel the same breeze.
The more the distance between us,
More does desire increase.

Come let us end this suspense and
Come to a decision.
Let us be guided by the heart
And not by the reason.
