Wild Whale - Poem by Hasmukh Amathalal

I was eager but not desperate
It was all about me to relate
I was getting into youth
This was only new truth

There was hunt for new bride
I was not at all consulted even slight
They thought it not appropriate or right
As I was still flying the kite

Such type of age never comes again in life time
In different countries same may not be the problem sometimes
Yet it is drawing some special attention
One is really trying to disclose but can’t mention

You won’t know the dilemma until you are really in
That may be altogether different experience and scene
You may be dreaming about your future partner
And this thing is likely to take place in near future

Something wonderful takes place at right time and place
Some one else may enter your life and win the race
Everybody may wish the happiness at the turn of event
Lots of blessings in turn with sugar coated comments

I was not to be blessed with such and unique case
I was dreaming someone else and making chase
She was unaware of move and remained silent
I bought some nice rose flowers and in morning sent

What was change I really contemplated?
Move to be considered as unfortunate and ill fated
Nothing of that sort took place or ever happened
For roses for one rose along with message was returned

“I shall hold your hand for ever” read the nice inscription
“I shall never desert or go away” it promised for redemption
I reassured myself that it was not a day dream
She wanted in face to walk with me in arm

Well it ended nicely as fairy’s tale
She was to venture in my sea as wild whale
Sometimes to hit with tales and sometimes with head
But ultimately it was nice life to dr3am about and lead
