She danced, not knowing he was watching
She smiled, looked at the skies, eyes twinkling
She grew to love the mountain that stared at her home,
Her eyes anticipated with bated breath, not knowing she had arrived.
Her mind played games, her inner critic, all negative
She knew not yet, he was still watching
She looked at the beasts, heart filled with love for them,
She stooped and squatted to pet them all in frenzy
Her heart flew in ecstacy as their unconditional love poured on her
She knew not yet, that he was still watching.
Her expressions changed from joy to gloom, as memories played havoc
She pulled the reins of her mind’s horses, smiling back again
And in one gracious sweep, she turned and their eyes met
One moment carried an eternity of silent words,
In that one eye contact, she felt her heart fly towards him
His smile reached his eyes, and she lowered hers, feeling shy
He moved towards her, reaching out for her petite hand
Her fingers between his, she knew now what to say
Words had deserted her, emotions swept her away
She looked towards the skies and said a little prayer
Lead me on, Universe, I deserve a royal lover.
He led her to the pedestal, helped her take a seat
He pampered her with praises and words of passion deep.
She knew now, it was love, her heart took another flight
Her feet no more quiet, she ran to dance again
Dance again she did, in little drops of rain,
She knew now, he watched, he smiled in love plain.
Each one of us deserves to be loved truly and pure. Love can never be defined or restricted into a few words. It is not only eternal and infinite but also deep and grey. Define it one way, and it will prove you something else. A hundred shades of love may not be enough to experience, it is merely the L of Love – and a long way to go.
