That's How They Loved - Poem by Shubham Praveen

He grunted, reprimanded and shouted.
She took it all in stride..
in the midst of all that anger, anguish, struggle,
there was an acceptance..

true love blossomed.

In their hearts they smiled even when they fought with each other..
In their eyes was exchange of respect even when they were reasoning..
they stood for causes and dreams alike..
she kept his dignity an he kept hers..

when she finally decided to leave..
He followed just a couple of years after..
he took the same path, (cancer, as it was)
so He could meet her..
to laugh about all that petty nagging they did,
to be proud of lessons they preached,
to be sad about how they failed together..

That's how my grandparents, they loved!
