    He is the steadfast companion of my life

    ‘The man’ on my journey

    His heart a torch of light

    beckons me to follow

    to surrender to the fullness of his love



    He nudges me gently,

    pushes me tenderly,

    showing me how to live

    and how not to,

    he is my friend
    my confidante !!
    He has the strength and integrity

    to surround me
    like a protective wall
    but opens the west window

    for me to wander
    in the skies of freedom
    unfettered, I go beyond

    my success,
    he too enjoys to the full


    Marriage sometimes can be a dark forest

    once you enter, you are lost

    with him,
    it is a blue canopy of love
    resplendent with shining splendor

    where I hear the
    sweet whispers of eternity
    in his random acts
    of warmth and love!

    His tenderness shows in the way
    he makes me feel
    as his “precious possession”!
    He is the perfect place
    for my restless heart to rest
    Harmony of life is

    his destination and mine!!

    Beautiful poem fm a beautiful YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Ambika,

    Its a beautiful poem and I could relate to each and every word of it. That's exactly how I feel about my man, my love...

    In this world of today, even marraiges have become a business partnership. Most of the time its built on everything else except love.

    I only hope these words of love spreads all across and makes everyone to get into the mood of love and romance.

    Ananth Has Set A Standard, A Tough One At That!

    where I hear the
    sweet whispers of eternity
    in his random acts
    of warmth and love!

    He is the perfect place
    for my restless heart to rest
    Harmony of life is

    his destination and mine!!

    but opens the west window


    for me to wander
    in the skies of freedom
    unfettered, I go beyond

    You've done it again. sweet whispers of eternity, random acts of warmth and love! What words, Ambika. When you talk of his opening the west window you hint at the spaces which is crucial for the success of any marriage. With such a pair around, what better destination could there be, but harmony of life. A touching poem, really.
    I have noticed one thing about your poems. I am not sure whether I have the liberty to tell that here. But let me attempt it. When you write a poem like this right from your heart all the words that jump into the page are simple and easily understandable. And they make us smile, scorn, and even shed a drop of tear. But for some of your poems I have to run for the dictionary. And when I do so the poem does not reach my heart as this simple one does. Blame it on my poor vocabulary, a very low exposure to poems,the fact that I am in a prosaic profession and a host of similar reasons. May be as a veteran poet, you may have some explanation for that!
    One thing is sure. I am not going to show this poem to my wife. For if she sees that and demands the same standards, what will I do!

    thanks friends

    Thank you Meena and Sridhar

    Meena, its easy for you to relate to this poem as you are a 'high romantic' and you have given samples of the deep attraction and love you share with your dear hubby. Thanks once again..

    Sridhar, I am sure if your wife demands such a poem, you will be able to produce a better one- your heart throbs with strong emotions. But I guess you are showing your love for her in more ways than one, so poetry need not come into the picture...actions speak louder than words...haha

    I cannot help but use some difficult words, if thats what you prefer to call them...when a language is rich with words which convey the exact feelings and thoughts, why settle for simpler words which may reach many, but fall short in conveying the precise thought? But this is my personal opinion..and I always consider the act of reaching for a dictionary is wonderful, one gains more vocabulary, more command and confidence..

    You Got It Wrong,Ambika!

    When I said that my wife would demand such high standards it was not of the poem but of me. You had shown your husband in such a wonderful light that if my wife reads those lines and demands such high standards (for instance there's always a complaint that I do not give her enough spaces and that I do not share household work - you see no man's a hero to his wife (except probably your man)) from me as a husband then there would be a problem. That's what I meant.
    I have a feeling that by avoiding difficult words your reach would be both deeper and wider. Take this very poem. All the words fall within the ambit of about two to three thousand word vocabulary range which most of us use. This poem inspires a lot more than when for every other line you need to reach up to the dictionary. I may be wrong too.
    regards,
    sridhar

    sorry, I got you wrong

    Oh Sridhar, how wrong I got you...?? See how simple minded I am...but I beg to differ on one point...this poem never says anything about my husband's standards..it talks of simple love and trust we both share...we both are absolutely down to earth and almost mediocre...but the speciality of poetry is it makes everything SEEM special...

    and, one more point, I have never ever written a poem so abstract and difficult as to push people towards a dictionary...as I said, I am too simple minded for that...

    Blue Canopy

    Ambika, your husband must've felt so proud and happy after reading this beautiful poem. No one deserves this poem more than your husband. Since I know Ananth personally I must tease him about being your blue canopy! He's very proud of all your achievements - it shows in the way he talks about you. And I'm so proud that both of you are my friends - can't decide whose company I enjoy more!
    Thanks for sharing this poem with us,
    Sharada

    thanks my hubby's friend....

    Dear Sharada, thanks a lot. I am sure you enjoy Ananth's company more than mine..thats why I never end our phone call without passing on the phone to him, you both seem to hit it off well..so I don't have the heart to deprive Ananth of that fun.
    The best thing about him is, his simplicity, a boy-like excitement, which I think you too will agree upon...Surely he deserves this poem as he is 'my best friend'..ours is not just a conventional man-wife relation and you too know it....
    Thanks again..
    ambika
