A Dream - Poem by Adhitiyaa Elango
Lying flat on the boulder was I,
Gazing into the foggy sky.
The sound of the water falling was all I heard
And the water droplets settled on my lashes, making my vision go blurred.
Not bothering to wipe it off from my eyes,
I lay still and frozen as ice.
A strong scent of a female filled the air;
I could feel my passion flare.
The fog began to clear,
I wiped my eyes to make my sight crystal clear.
An angel she was, clad completely in white,
As pure as snow and so was it bright.
She stood with her feet in the stream;
I wondered why I never came across such beauty even in my dream.
Her eyes were distinct as pearls,
Her hair at the end was all in curls;
A bed of roses were her lips,
So graceful was the orbit of her hips.
The smile on her face;
Set my heart ablaze
Making it increase its pace;
Her looks made me daze.
I proceeded forward not knowing where my feet trod,
I had already crossed the stream were it was broad.
In front of her I knelt;
It was very strange, the way I felt.
"Will you be my wife? " I said
And watched her slowly nod her head.
She offered her hand, palm facing up;
Wrapping my fingers over it, I stood up.
"I love you", she confessed;
My lips on hers, I pressed.
Chocolate, maple syrup, sugar,
A taste so different that I couldn't figure.
I wished we were like this forever,
But every meeting has an end, whatsoever.
My darling, my lover, my beautiful wife,
This is how I brought her into my life.
