My Valentine


My valentine
always with me
standing like rock, calm and serene
enduring moments of sorrow and agony
my changing moods, conflicting demands
whims and caprices with a lovely smile

She never lived her life
her life is a poetry of dedication
where in she imprinted my name
in her sweat and blood
an open book she is
a perennial stream of love and dedication
every moment of life she lived for other
forgetting she has a life of her own

The ebb and flow tide of life
hardly perturbed her, its vagaries
failed to snatch away that beautiful
smile from her lips
the stay of my life all along

I can not imagine a life without her
every moment of which is filled
with her grace and grandeur
non like her, non can be
the only reality in my world of
fading dreams and changing priorities

In her arms my heaven
in her smile my whole world
in her eyes all my dreams
in her touch colours of rainbow
in her love the meaning of
life, its fulfilment and beauty

My valentine
the only oasis in a dry desert
my paradise on earth and gateway to heaven
without her life is no life
a rudderless ship
in the boisterous sea
