So Valentines Day is here again! It has brought with it the memories of the the days when I first met my love! Loving some one whom you have met umpteen times is a feeling, an emotion,a sensation which you alone can experience.It is something which is difficult to explain in words but all the same you are sure that you are in love and realise that you are being tenderly hooked to a rapturous sensation of ecstasy.
LOVE just over powered
without my knowing!
It crept into my whole being
my soul, without knowing!!
It came aroused, rendered
me helpless,without my knowing!!!
It all happened more than fifty years ago, but the memory of those days is still as fresh as the morning dew. Even today, the thought of those special days brings a smile on my face. How it started,when it blossomed and when it mesmerised me is immaterial. The essence is that it engulfed two hearts in eternal bliss and togetherness. I knew what his feelings were,how deep was his love for me. The purity of his heart, the tender touch and radiance of his eyes was so obvious that they conveyed what were his innermost feelings. His actions,his deep rooted feelings,and the broad smile on his face, when he saw me even from a distance were surely indicative that he was deeply drenched in love for me. I sometimes wondered why he was hesitant to utter those three words, which I was yearning to hear from him. Every day I expected to hear from him ,but the expectation was futile. Why, but why he was dumb in uttering what I was sure of !! Then as sudden as lightning I knew the truth!! The reality dawned on me.All my fears and all my doubts vanished.I knew why he was tight lipped. Why was he silent? It was nothing but his inherent shy nature, which prevented him to lay open his heart!! At last my mind was at rest.
I was knitting a pullover for him. I completed it in two days. The same day I met him and gave him a surprise. I presented the pullover to him. He was elated and questioned,"What is this?" Without any hesitation, without a second thought the words, "I LOVE YOU" flowed. Instantly , to my surprise and in a dramatic manner he said, "Will you MARRY me?" The rest is History.
