Not On The Valentine's Day - Poem by Khairul Ahsan
No, today is not the Valentine's Day.
Yet, when I woke up in the morning,
At the call of a cuckoo cooing on a
Nearby tree, I reckoned this to be our
Day of love. Refreshed by the gentle
South breeze entering my bedroom
Through the window cleavage that I
deliberately left open, I surmised that
The ambiance was perfect for us to
Celebrate the day, in love, in fondness.
Drizzling droplets stuck on the window
Told me that the outside weather was
Chilly, but inside we were warm. Still in
Bed, I saw you getting down. When I
Stretched out my two palms, a gesture
Well known to you, gently did you place
Your face between my outstretched palms,
For me to caress it. Tightly embraced, we
Felt our love in silence for some time.
Inside love doesn't care for any Day!
I abandoned all my day's work, just to
Spend the day leisurely at home with you.
We spent the day together, simply being
Together and talking. In the evening, at
Other times I would have watched the live
Telecast of the cricket commentary, but
Not tonight. Busy in gossips, you missed
Your regular evening walk, and I one of
My irregular ones. Yet we have no regrets,
As we spent some quality time together.
