When Love Finds You...

It will be a three month long wait for me to see and hold my love in my arms. These three months are going to be harder than I thought. Many a people said that love starts to dwindle away after tying the knot. Two years into marital bliss and every time I see him, I fall in love all over again.

It all started with a simple crush and now we are together in this beautiful journey. I never even realized when I fell in love with him. When true love finds you, you will know it! You feel happy, sad, excited, nervous, all at the same time. That's the closest I can explain how it feels.

I used to expect something different in the form of love. I had my own set of bullet points. However, life taught me a great lesson: 'What you are asking for is not the same thing as what you want.'  

I thought I wanted someone who could dance. But life gave me what I truly wanted.
When I'm on the dance floor swaying away to the beats, I can always feel his love; the lovable admiring glances amidst his conversation with friends slowly sipping into his drink. And when he goes that extra mile to try and sway with me for some special occasions; those awfully sweet attempts are the best dances of my life.

I thought I wanted someone who could sing. But life gave me what I truly wanted.
Every time I sing for him, he listens to me with utmost attention, as if I was the best singer in the world. Lying on my lap, requesting another song while I run my fingers through his hair. And those little attempts he makes to sing a few lines for me...

The unexpected things he does for me, are truly unexpected! A surprise is a surprise when you hardly expect it. And with him, I can never guess when it will happen. Something is more special when it's rare, at least for me :)

When this beautiful love found me, I had my doubts, but I embraced it. And I'm so glad today that I did!
Whenever I hold his hands, he wraps his around mine and makes me feel loved, protected, wanted. The very hands that touch my cheeks, the very hands that wipes my tears. the very hands that tickle me, the very hands that pat my back, the very hands of the man I love.

I can't thank God enough for giving me a man so imperfectly perfect for me, someone so differently similar, someone I really wanted! Come back soon, my sweetheart. I can't wait to fall in love again...

And now a beautiful song that I dedicate to the one who means everything to me, my lover, my best friend, my confidante, my life - my husband.

  10. Hi Bobby,

    Thanks for the read. Glad you liked it :) Everyone has a way of expressing their love. Some even express it by not expressing at all. Paradoxical ;) Hope she does in the way that best fits her and hope you are able to read them even if they aren't words :)

  14. I also thought I had married a man who would be just the way I wanted him to be. However, he is so different from me, yet he is right person for me. Though in some unimportant ways we are totally different, but when it comes to important issues we both seem to think in the same way.
    There is some weird unity in our diversity too.
    I am glad you are happy with the man who may be different but is very suitable for you.

    1. *^_^* Yea, I thought I would never find that love and it was actually there right in front of me all the time!

      Sometimes all you need to do is sit back and it all happens on its own :D
