' It Could Never Have Been Better... '


It all started on a traditional 'arranged marriage ' note
Parents talked - exchanged photos and numbers..
And of course it was for us to make - the crucial decision of a Yes or No.

Still couldn't figure out what life had in store..
Prayed my heart out - desperately- wanted an answer..
Got none..but prayers never ceased nor did tears..
It was hard to breathe even before that Day..

when we finally met..
Dec 7.

That day, when I found all my answers..
As eyes met, a bridge was made..
A bridge so silent yet so deep..

The 20 minute encounter hardly gave a moment to wander in time.. even dreams got localized..

It defined a new language..
Words were less exchanged but thoughts were..
Or even beyond..I now hardly know..
But one thing was certain,

The answers to my prayers..

For now I realize what it all meant..
Love
Even in His word..

Patient and kind..
Not jealous or boastful..
Yes.
I found in him - All...
my Friend, my Partner, my Playmate, my Support, my Guide, my Teacher, my Lover....

My Life.

As days turned much brighter
and nights less lonelier..
A smile always lingered on..
Months ticked like seconds and it now feels like ages...
A beautiful portrait that s forever etched..
In my heart...
In my mind...
In my soul...

Yes.
It could never have been better! !

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
