|While growing up with song and dance,|
|To set up a new trend-|
|Sounds of drums and drummers|
Became my childhood friend!
Tuning in a radio or strumming on guitars
Enticed my workaholic mind-
And relieved all stresses in a hurry,
Today I seem to find!
But struggles of dreaded sleepless nights
Raced against my restless heart-
Until you donned on the horizon
To mend buttons of my shirt!
Winking at your deep blue eyes
And the curly pony tails-
My eyes danced like a peacock
Till the wedding bells!
You added fragrance to this life,
And orchestrated my inner thought-
Like a dancing snake, to create magic,
And forget the battles I fought!
Whiff of the problems disappeared
In the calligraphy of early Spring-
And we fell in love, like the dove,
To switch rings without a string!
Moonlit kisses glossed to smooth out
Bumpy rides in my soul-
And they glowed in your sweet lips,
Like a diamond from the coal!
Truly I am out of words today,
To exhale my admiration for you-
’Cause you’ve soothed my nerves
With grudging adoration for global view!!
