Over the years,
I tried expressing myself in my heart.
But my heart is only known by me.
I spoke with my mentor,
Mentor said I have to express it in language.
But I’m sure you will not understand my language.
I thought of showing you signs,
But you are not a Jew.
Constrained by my vocabulary prowess,
I tried using English words
But words cannot truly express my heart.
And words are only meaningful
To those to whom understanding is given.
Even when I gather words to say it,
My meaningful words are meaningless to you
Because your heart is not connected with mine.
Wait! You understand my heart
And you are making me go through this agony?
My dear love, but you know that
If I have eternity on earth,
I will spend a million years playing scrabble or crossword.
But even the King get only a thousand years.
Hope you see eternity is calling
And we have to yield the fruits.
I cannot say that I have fallen in love with you
Because loving you is not a temptation that I succumbed to.
If it was so, I probably would have risen again even the seventh time.
Loving you is an integral part of my life.
That’s why I only see myself growing in love for you.
Maybe the metamorphosis is yet to be completed.
There seems to be a million miles between our hearts
But I hope that Love will bridge the gap before perfection.
