Separation Day

It’s Valentine’s Day today, the day that broke our heart
The day we lost each other, the day we were torn apart

All our lives, we were joined together as one
We lazed around, chilled, and had oodles of unadulterated fun

But then came that day, when it all came to an untimely end
Something happened, that neither time nor tide could mend

And try as we might, our efforts are bound to go in vain
For what chance do we have, when even all the king’s horses, and all the king’s men, could not put us together again!

    This makes me think Humpty Dumpty and his love were Cadbury Eggs! But that getting my holidays crossed, isn’t it? Fun flash, Anurag!

    Too bad Humpity wasn’t boiled first, eh? πŸ™‚
