Being in love is a feeling ~ different, unusual, undescribed yet only felt: That elation, that sense of completeness, that act of being consumed by an all-consuming emotion! On this note, I remember Shakespeare saying,
“Journeys end in lovers meeting”
Indeed an extraordinary thought! Well, my journey was a mix of many things; perhaps all are so! Yet, all are different in their own special ways!
However, my journey didn’t seem to end; it felt like having crossed yet another milestone in a beautiful journey through time. Maybe that is what the journey called love is all about ~ being together, beyond circumstance, beyond distance, beyond time.
Once upon a time, on an unexpected moment,
Love blossomed and Smiles shined,
Out of moments enshrined.
In treasured memories –
Of the first time you held my hand.
We were indeed two souls ambling hand in hand.
That was a moment: frozen in time
When you sung to me the song of my soul:
Indeed it was a moment of bliss – In that meaningless kiss!
Once upon a time, on that beautiful moment
I could see a gleam of beauty and shimmer
I still cherish that moment:
Of Our first candle-light dinner.
Look at us today: Two souls so perfectly entwined in one:
And here we are cherishing the moments of our journey.
Ah! That innocent child in you:
It is you, I am so much in love with!
I still remember your eyes gleaming in happiness
As you gave me that birthday cake On my special day!
Just as I cherished these moments,
I thought of reciprocating
To the most special person: my special gift from god;
In a silent hope that perhaps
I might bring back the smile I saw that day!
A hundred things I thought never sufficed;
In the end, I simply could gather a few moments: etched in my heart!
Perhaps that could be the best gift:
In the treasure of my heart, holding memories that would never let us apart!
From being in high spirits to being kids back again;
From your shining eyes to your childlike smile.
This is all I have: A treasure of memories of ‘our’ journey together:
Of good times and the bad,
Of sanity and the mad.
And may these remain, forever in our hearts!
It has been a happy journey so far! I am sure it will keep getting beautiful as moments and days pass: like the older wine getting richer! It is not the time that shall move the magic wand; it is us who shall make all the difference ~ in good times & the bad, in sanity & the mad!
