I look out of the car,
Hazy are the scenes I see..
Tiny drops of rain,
Settle on the glass pane..
A warm breath I draw,
And blow it on the window..
Quickly I scribble our names together,
Enveloped in a heart frame..
I watch it fizzle away with the cool air,
The coldness of the moment made my joy melt away..
A void felt my heart,
Was this what we meant to be ?
Together, momentarily ?
To be wiped out by the wind ?
So hard I tried to fight the urge,
But a tear yet escaped the corner of my eye..
Suddenly the car came to a screeching halt,
I looked at him confused..
As if the whirlwind in my heart,
Reflected in his solemn grey eyes..
Squeezing my hand a bit tighter,
A heart he made on my palm with his finger..
Then scribbled our names in that,
And he looked at me with joy..
Perplexed I tried to gauge,
I could see twinkle in his eyes..
Together, forever, he said,
Till the wind wipes away our names..
I smiled and looked at my palm,
Our names eternally engraved..
Carved out in invisible ink,
Of love and care, none but we could see..
Smiling to myself sheepishly,
I closed my palm and looked away..
He held my hand again,
Entangled his fingers in mine..
Pressing the tattoo against my hand too,
Saying he never left my hand again..
