“You have turned my world upside down” was the thought that flashed my mind when we met, without knowing that it would be the same even after so many years. True love as they say comes with no restrictions, no place or no timeframes and I presume it was true as they said, love knew no bounds, indeed if it did I would be not be in your arms right now.
Some relationships are not merely confined to a physical presences, it is felt. It is often said you can’t be in love with someone when you are already committed, but can we restrict love by boundaries. People will call this lust, some will call this infidelity, but when this love is not bound to physical but emotional needs, what would you call this then..
God has made all of us different and we love what differences teach us and make us believe, ours was a story of love in differences. Being extreme opposites of each other, he blabbering most of the times and me being the silent listener, he being the charm in everyone’s eyes and I being his shadow, love grew over the years. It was love at first sight for sure, not only for me but for him too.
Amidst the crowd he stood out and I still managed to charm him with simplicity. He made every way to get in touch and we moved forward chatting, singing, gossiping and being together. But as they say, everything comes with a package of its own goods and bad. We did too.
Love for me as been a very complicated term, especially when it has left me heartbroken most of the times. But for him, it was a simple term, just love without expectations. I envied this but it made sense today. We all love with expectations, parents love the kids hoping to have them in their older days, spouses love each other to have a companion (even if it means by compromises) and to prosper together to become a family, our love for God is mostly to ask something in return for the offerings we give Him. Can we love without expectations is something to be pondered on.. The spiritual path takes us to self less love, to thank Him for all the beautiful things in life and have Him by our side always without always asking for something. There will be many instances of self less love in our everyday lives but I’m pretty sure they weigh less than the ones asked for always.
To love him was the only expectation he had on me and I couldn’t thing otherwise. This did not mean that we dint carry on with our personal life’s but having someone to think of in your heart by itself is a beautiful feeling. Probably they say that you click the instant you meet, words flow and you don’t need vocabulary to connect; feelings do the talking. Being in the happy place is what matters in the end I felt. We live in a world who teaches us what is wrong and what is right and that’s purely because someone has defined it for us. Every time when you make a decision ask yourself and not the world because the world is not going to help you out when you are stuck or you prosper. Being a destiny child throughout my life, I always think, things happen for a reason in our life. We don’t meet people by chance, or they don’t just come and go. It’s our choice completely on whom we want to hold back in our lives and whom we let go. Life is too short to be wasted and think on what will be happen 10 years down the line. We need to live for today, we enjoy the day and cherish the moments we have now because love lasts forever, life doesn’t.
I have known others before
They loved me in a lot better way,
But I haven’t held anyone else So close,
As I hold you today…
Your breathe makes me quiver,
Your touch makes me shiver,
Your hug takes me to another world
I wish I could hold this forever
Destiny always has its plans
You know that well too
Don’t be scared my love
Because I am here for you.
