Being in love is so universal, yet it is so unique. My love may be completely different from your love, the object of your love may be the complete opposite of mine. Yet when we attempt to put them down in words, your words may be the same as mine… I might completely relate to every word, feel like it was written keeping me in mind. That’s the power of Love and that’s also the awesome power of the written word !
Here’s a poem written by a sweer friend of mine, and its like I couldn’t have said it better myself:
Happiness was easy but delight still daunted,
Contentment was simple, but exhilaration still haunted,
Purgatory or Hades, on me the choice was thrust,
A life so unfulfilled, desires ground to dust.
The beauty of your love shone through,
clouds of doom ripped apart,
The sun shone brighter, as sunshine filled
As now when I gaze at the heavens, only
one thought begins to start,
I will continue to love you; till death will do
In my heart now resides hope, faith and love,
Sublime in their presence, severe in their
And the greatest of these is love,
For it now gives my life meaning
Gorgeous are these mornings, over which
rejoicing birds flew,
Romance kissed evenings, fluttering
meadows adorned with dew.
Your fragrance spreads in my heart, a tribute
to your creator too,
When you brought sunshine into my life,
how far can light be from you ?
when I now count my blessings,
when I now count my fortunes, I always
start with you.
And which is why my sweet sunshine…..
I just can’t live without you.
– Devina Trivedi
Sigh…. Love…. To the one who makes me feel like this, you should know, I’m glad I’m in love with you… ❤
