    How could a cup of coffee taste the same at the same place after 2 decades?? definitely the charm lies with the company and the companionship..

    Reminiscing over it.....:cheers


    Every year with you has been a ride,
    Some days holding on to my racing heart,
    And other days wishing for more spice,
    The thrill of the ride never diminishes,
    Because of you,

    Every milestone, has been a achievement,
    With you standing on the sides
    Cheering the loudest, your pride to be heard,
    Instilling a little more confidence in me, possible,
    Because of you.

    Every argument has been a revelation,
    How far I have come as a person,
    How far we have come as partners,
    The experiences happened,
    Because of you.

    I thought we cannot promise each other
    A life of sunshine, but life has been bright,
    Dazzling, piercing and at times, soothing too,
    Teaching us appreciating the darkness
    with a little more respect.
    Traversing both became easy,
    Because of you.

    I thought life is not going to be a piece of cake,
    Little did I realize, that we had so many thorns,
    That we had our time sealed healing each other’s wounds,
    Learning to be more compassionate happened
    Because of you.

    Does love grow as we age,
    I learnt it did, better than when we met,
    it was more like the rising tide with the waning moon,
    I learnt loving people did not hurt,
    it was a choice made by me,
    Because of you.

    I am happy, you held my hand, chased the sorrows,
    The fears, when the ripples caused disturbances,
    In the lake of life.
    As I stand watching
    the ripples on the lake, adding more beauty
    reflecting the bright rays of the moon,
    the ripples hold a calmness beneath,
    to be cherished with an inner understanding,
    Because of you.

    The beauty around me is always on a roll,
    Changing with every season and reason,
    every change holds a special place,
    for there is a new meaning,
    to everything around me,
    Because of you.


    P.S. A friend of mine commented that i have got lost in the world of weight loss and philosophy. this is to show her that i am always a romantic at heart..well does this feel romantic is something i dare not question:hide:

    Actually, the crux of this poem's message is in the last sentence of every stanza. Are we giving enough credit to our life partner? Whether it is pleasure or pain, do we believe that we are 50:50 partners? When our child succeeds, do we share the credit equally between the two? When we face a crisis, do we show our finger and blame our spouse? Do we really believe that both have a say on any decision relating to the family? when one is hurting whether other's heart is melting? when one accomplishes something, whether other's heart is smiling? The body and mind could be separate but the souls should be united.The thoughts and words could be separate but actions should be united. They have to cut the diamond (the family) from various angles but there should be one facade of the diamond through which the brilliance of the diamond should be visible.

    Dear Shan,

    Thanks for the Coffee.... who cares about the taste.... It is, with whom we have the coffee counts.... But it was really good... Had a nice time.... The roller coaster was too good... Never realised 2 decades has passed... Still it looks so fresh.... and so near....

    Thanks...

    Shanthi,

    Of course, its romantic !!

    I know, you are such that, you may get deeply involved in weightloss or whatever, but you cannot get too lost to be romantic at heart :biggrin2:.

    Each and every stanza in your poem has a charm and is worth re reading.
    Great one buddy.
    Wishing you and Veda many many more decades of happiness together.

    Bye

    Shanvy,
    You must be getting a number of e-mails and must be wondering what kind of person am I to be sending you a message. I have been following IL silently for sometime and have always enjoyed your comments on weight loss, spirituality, recipes, arts and crafts, real estate or anything else. I am sure I have left out quite a bit. I enjoy your blogs very much and just wanted to thank you. I can relate to many things you mention. I wanted to send this as a private message but cannot since I do not have enough posts.

    I live in the US and visit my mother and MIL every year. I have a couple of griends from college who live in Chennai. So, it is always nice to know the latest scene in Chennai and I thank you for that.

    Raji
