A Made For Each Other Couple - Poem by AtreyaSarma Uppaluri

'Are you the one, I've been waiting for, all my life?
Are you the one, he has made, for me alone? '
At long last, have I met the angel of my dreamful quest,
In mind and body, in heart and soul with beauty blest.
How I salute God for this delectable present in my nest!
Our ideas and ideals in harmony concur,
Our aspirations and values run together.
Yes, we are a made for each other couple,
Are much more than one plus one simple.
By synergism, we will achieve together surely,
A lot more than each of us can separately.
Our attraction is not just physical and momentary,
But a two-in-one lifelong sacramental commentary
On jointly taking on the life's complex struggles and pulls,
On tackling its highs and lows, summers and winters full,
On co-authoring many a noble deed to our fill,
Worthy of a life blessed by the divine will.

[Published originally in the Deccan Chronicle English daily, Sept 21,2003, as the week's best verse, in their 'Be a poet' contest. They used to provide a lead, and you had to follow it up with your own creation. It's another story, though, that the announced prize of Rs 150 never arrived! ]
