Forever Mine

His eyes were the shade of coffee beans.
It was so dark,

That it reminded me of dark chocolate,

Dark, beautiful and intense.

It felt magical to look into them,

Coz of the timeless beauty it held.

His hair all wet,

And stuck to his forehead,

From the light drizzle.

He was on his knees,

With a rose in hand,

Right before me,

In the rain,

On an empty street.

And I was here,

Standing in a daze.

Yes,

We have known each other since childhood.

And he was constantly by my side,

Through every phase of life.

He has been there for me at all times.

Nursing me like a mother,

When I was upset.

Scolding me like a father,

When I was wrong.

Encouraging me to do the things I wasn’t sure of,

Like the best friend that he was.

He has played every possible role in my life,

Except for the one that he was on the verge of playing.

No one knew me as well as he did,

And no one understood me the way he did.

He’s always been putting up with all my drama and stupidity,

Without complaining the tiniest bit.

I’ve always dreamt of us together,

But end up dismissing the idea.

What if something went wrong?

I didn’t want to risk losing him for anything……

I couldn’t afford to!

He has been my backbone my entire life,

And surviving without him,

Was out of the question.

I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve a person like him.

Did I even deserve him in the first place?

To that I had no answer.

But he was here before me today,

Wanting the same thing that I did.

What was I going to tell him?

Was I going to risk it?

Even if I did,

Would it work out……?

As I thought all this through,

He waited patiently in the same position,

In the down pour.

Which was becoming heavier with every passing minute.

I looked at him with anxious eyes,

But I saw victory in his eyes.

He knew he’d won me over!

He smiled at me,

And nodded in understanding.

I told myself I could do this,

And I wasn’t going to lose him.

So I looked into his eyes,

And nodded with a huge smile.

He gave the rose to me,

Stood up,

And hugged me.

We stood there in the rain,

As I listened to the steady beating of his heart.

Which now belonged to me,

And will be mine alone forever.

Our Happily Ever After

​Her eyes were as brown as chocolate,

And the sunlight only made it look lighter.

I was afraid to look into them,

Afraid that I would lose myself in them.

But after looking into her eyes,

I was afraid to look away.

What if she was only a dream?

Or perhaps an illusion?

What if I looked away,

And she disappeared?

She was too beautiful to be real,

And too good to be mine.

Her eyes were light, beautiful and mysterious.

It held a story of its own,

A story I was yet to discover.

I want to wake up to her beautiful face every morning.

To understand her better,

And discover a little more of her every single day.

I want to stay in bed,

Cuddling up with her on cold mornings,

And just stay there enjoying the weather with her.

I want to go on long drives together,

On a perfectly sunny morning.

I want to spend an eternity with you.

But to love you,

An eternity will not suffice.

You have an impossibly beautiful soul.

And ever since,

The word impossible has lost all meaning.

A soul so pure and magnificent,

That it makes me want to be a better person for you.

It makes me want more of you each day.

Your love for me,

Makes me feel complete.

It gives me the strength to fight against all odds,

And the courage to face the world,

With a new outlook,

A new zeal,

And a new enthusiasm.

I feel infinite with you.

I see a future together,

A future we’ve been dreaming of,

Ever since we met.

We know that this journey to our future isn’t going to be easy.

We’ve got to fight harder!

And for that,

We need a lot of love,

And a little bit of trust.

But that is something we already have in abundance.

At the end of the day,

It is definitely going to be worth the effort.

And together,

We will live our happily ever after. 

True Beauty

​She was the most beautiful person I’d ever laid eyes upon.

Her hair ruffled in the wind,

Her makeup all gone,

But there was something about her eyes……

I just couldn’t look away from them, 

Coz they showed me how happy she was to be here with me.

I felt truly blessed to have her in my life.

She did not just fulfill the duties of being a girlfriend,

But also became my mother at hard times,

A teacher when I was wrong,

And a guide when I lost my path in life.

She never let me face my problems alone.

But always stood by me and supported me through it all.

She gave me a purpose in life.

She changed me from the boy I was yesterday to the man I am today.

She was an angel that God sent down to help me at all times.

Every time I looked at her,

I fell a little more in love with her innocence of heart and responsibility of mind. 

She had the heart of a child and the mind of a mother.

With her,

I felt like a complete man.

The care she showed me,

And the love she showered me with,

Was way beyond expression of words.

Every time I looked at her,

The world around me seemed to come to a halt,

And time froze.

Everything around me looked beautiful,

Coz the definition of beauty stood before me.

Beauty was no longer about looks to me,

It was about the heart,

It was about the soul.

And she had both of it.

When she was around I always felt positive,

I felt capable,

And I wanted to push myself harder in life.

Having a girlfriend is not just about getting physical,

It’s about getting emotional.

There lies the true beauty of a relationship.

I just hope to keep her as happy as she is today for the rest of our lives together.

And I will be by her side when she is having a rough time.

I hope to give her all the joys of life,

And the happiness that she deserves.

I will live up to be the man of her dreams.
