For my Valentine

No drums and drolls when he was born
When I was born, he was 5 years old.
Both of us went schooling in the same city unaware of each other's existence.
When I went to school, he went to college.
I was still in school when he started work.
And in 2002,we chatted once.It continued for a good 5 years.
Finally in 2008, our lives converged to the same point.

I know flowers, red roses, chocolates are all lovely.But,nothing like it when the indolent man sets up the bed every night, or warms up some milk for me,gets wild if I fall ill, happily cleans the house or washes some vessels, gives me a soothing massage when I have a headache....this is a much deeper love and affection than a mere box of chocolates or a boquet of flowers.

And to the tall, sensible, cool,calm,handsome man I am married to...
I did not know that destiny would bring a Smylemaker to me
and that everyday in my life would be a jubilee
The love that you so freely give
is something that makes me live
I cherish every moment with you
and look forward to each day expecting something new
My darling honey baby, even when we are old and our hair grey
my love for you will stay.

Was it just yesterday??

Was it just yesterday I bumped into Rediff chatroom?

Was it just yesterday we chatted just to know that we share the same birthdate?

Was it just yesterday we exchanged mails and chatted occasionally?

Was it just yesterday you proposed and I accepted that?

Was it just yesterday we started off the relationship , though it is a good 5 1/2 years?

Was it just yesterday that I was nervous about our parents meeting up for the first time?

Was it just yesterday our parents met to talk about getting us married?

Was it just yesterday we got engaged?

Was it just yesterday that I cribbed there is a whole 1 year gap between the engagement and the marriage?

Was it just yesterday I stood in the bedroom balcony with the bridal mehendi in my hands and still thinking if we are really married?

6 odd years of knowing you, but everyday is new for me, for us.
