Can you do me a favor?
Six days before Valentines,
Head bowed, bent on one knee,
She knew it was her magical moment.
A moment every girl yearns for,
The memory which lingers across decades,
An electrifying smile, that refuses to spark out !
A proposal was all it took,
To travel to cloud 9 and above,
Perhaps the stars & moon also seemed brighter that night.
Like God put the heavenly rings around its love “Saturn”
He too slipped a ring in her finger,
Connecting right to the heart, drawing a tear from her eyes.
Somehow, in love, everything is insanely right,
Worries of the world lay compressed,
Like the spare tire under the backseat.
Her best friend also “Proposed” her,
For a lifelong friendship,
Without demands & complaints.
Happiness knew no bounds,
She smiled and accepted with a handshake.
Two promises were made.
Some say, Promises are made to be broken,
But they don’t really tell you
How shattered people are left in the aftermath.
Her heart was broken into a million pieces,
When he walked away,
“I loved you, but..” was all he said.
Amidst the watery streets of misery,
She was about to fall, real hard,
But, someone caught her hand.
She turned around hoping it would be him,
It was her “Proposal Friend” who held her,
“But I am with you. ALWAYS..” was all he said.
Love might be a wonderful seven star Titanic,
Friendship might be only an ordinary ship,
But it is the only ship that never sinks !
Happy Valentines week…!!
