While I was still young and naïve,
Caressed with paternal love,
Living freely, soaring high,
They wanted me to be a wife.
Though we met more than thrice
Amidst family or alone,
And the knot was finally tied,
But I felt like throwing a dice.
The man who was still a stranger,
Claimed a part of my life,
Through my bangles and vermillion,
Yet I never found my soul in danger.
Then came life I’d never known,
Of togetherness, compassion, and care,
An eternal plant of love grew,
From the seed I’d never sown.
A stranger who just occurred in my fate,
Wrapped my wrists in his palms,
Took me through the walk of life,
Eventually became my soulmate!
