Before You

This was a poem that I had written in 2009. Hope you like it.


Before you, my life was an empty canvas,
Where I experimented with colors.
But none appeared on it.
I thought my vision was impaired.
But you taught me,
That the right colors are yet to get splashed on it.

Before you, my life was a tuneless melody,
Where the words ordered themselves in unruly rhymes.
But no magic emerged from it.
But you taught me,
That the right strains are yet to be notated on it.

Before you, my life was an absurd story,
Where the characters bore no meaning at all.
But your love transformed it,
Filled it with melodies, colors and words,
Which knitted the wonderful tale of our love
In colorful threads,
Kneaded with a golden needle
And perfumed with fragrances from paradise.

Before you, life was not Life;
I was not me.

    “there is nothing called destiny there are only choices”

    • Nandini says:

      There are choices and beliefs. I respect your belief. My rationale doesn’t believe in destiny but my romantic side doesn’t let go of it. And I am not ashamed of that at all.
