You taught me

Smiling and laughing not my best attributes,

Keeping calm and cool was still unlearned,

Indifference and apathy were my best weapons,

Yet all these dissolved when you came,

You taught me to face the world with a smile;

Niggling and grumbling wouldn’t get me anywhere,

Did I realise the great fall then? No,

You were calm while I seethed with anger,

You smiled while I smirked,

You were my peace, my trust, my sole,

My mind being its own master,

An angel could never be my soul,

I sought the easier way out, running far

Lingering would tell me the truth,

Patience was never my element,

Yet you cared and shared with me,

Deeper did I fall, when I knew your smile,

Could follow your smell and shadow,

Yet you asked me made stop mid-path;

Smiling you gave our angel, a blush like yours-

You were not beholden, yet you let me hold,

Our angel is now my calm and peace,

Makes me smile and laugh, just like once did.

Withering beauty

Shredding skin, hollow eyes,

Wrinkles on cheek do not look nice;

Love would never last long,

Beauty embossed would cede to a sad song-

A wise mind can lead a long loving relation,

Holding all promises true, will gladly be the true conviction.

What were you doing ?

“So will you be doing that “? she asked him

“Do what “? he asked her while turning a page of their old wedding album .

“Did you even listen to anything I said”? she enquired with a scowl

“Umm…Actually no”, he replied like a kid caught with a candy.

“Then what were you doing while I was ranting the list “, she asked him almost fuming now.

He knew how to calm her, “I was just trying to understand, how a woman could look so beautiful and yet retain for the past 40 years”.

A smile slowly crept up her lips and she gave a small peck on his cheek.
