Partner in Crime by Shivank M

She was there when I smiledAnd there in my tears

Cheering for my success

And consoling all my fears

A shoulder when my burden grew too heavy

A hand when I fell and couldn’t rise

An eye when I couldn’t pick one or the other

An ear when I grew tired of my lies

I loved her the same through all that time

But that love wasn’t one that one could define

It wasn’t the fantastical childhood Romance

It was the love for a Partner in Crime.
