Understanding and respect

All the way

For what is and not

To share ideas and fears

 Hopes and materials

 It came at a pace

 The tortoise would have won

 And the growth slowly

Ours from conflicts

Others differences

That time…

Too long, too great

You understood, no instant love

Never at first sight

Second sight, heart-broken

 Third, hate, loathe

The road to your heart

No hills, no valleys

Just plains

Neither ran nor crawled

And came to be

 But never fell

Others fall, no hands

Catch them fall

 Though no beauty

 Without a fault

 Great friendship, you offered

Young and vigorous

Yet, not ripe for such activity.
