|the Rain Man|
At the dusk of this year in which you and I added each others names to our names, and showered words and verses over each other generously,
I thank you for giving me someone to believe in,
someone who is there,
someone who calls me his own
...and is my own.
Someone who is a child to me
and a parent too.
I remember my want list was too long, and I wanted a boyfriend who is a staunch vegetarian, a bus-train traveler, someone who has “son of india” kind of emotions. And then I found you and fell for you knowing nothing about you actually.
Slowly the sepals opened and the flower bloomed, but not for a second did I think my life has doomed... Though you had it all that was a certain no-no in my list. (AIYOO!)
I love you beyond everything. And I love you so much.
But I love you not for anything, not because of any thing.
For if there is a reason, it is not love.
You know, funnily though, I have a long list of what I dislike in you. My list of likes is too short.
I know I fight with you often.
blame it on my upbringing,
I know there have been doubts that I have attacked you with.
For our thoughts are as different as chalk and cheese.
I trust you immensely, but am inquisitive about everything about you as would a toddler.
Pardon me if I tress pass, scold me if I repeat...
I wish to tell you this new year, that you are all that I wished I could have.
I know we live apart, but you are a part of my living.
Thank you for being the dawn of my life. This year and every year.
I wish to spend my life with you.
It may not be conventional. May be our relationship doesn’t have a name. But we could define it and make a new society, where man and man can live with love and be accepted and loved by everybody.
I don’t wish to show the world anything. But yes, we can make a difference to this world.
Remember the day you landed in Bombay from Chennai, I had a poster in my hand.. like a placard..
I ask you again... in front of this social site that it all started.
i have nothing to give you this new year... but have something to ask for ....
Will you marry me?
