Sweet n Sour..!!!

This post has been published by me as a part of the Blog-a-Ton 41; the forty-first edition of the online marathon of Bloggers; where we decide and we write. To be part of the next edition, visit and start following Blog-a-Ton. The theme for the month is "SWEET AND SOUR"
Sweet & Sour: Its called Marriage

I never knew I would love someone as uniquely as I love you
You irritate me to the heights; let me get tired taking care of you
You never leave me love notes, nor bring me flowers
You hardly say ‘I Love You’ nor wish on special days
Yet I love you for your little love that’s so rare

I dreamt of special holidays; wrote love poems
Celebrated life like none other
Then I met you; time had come and gone by
With no memories to cherish; no dreams to recollect
Yet I love you for the little time we spend together

Happiness was a common feeling, which just happened everyday
Sorrow was a distant nightmare, which never dared to touch my shadow
Little things brought a smile that filled my heart and soul
But I hardly remember when we laughed out together
Yet I love you for the little smile that’s so rare

I never knew I would love someone as uniquely as I love you
For the way you hold me and bear my madness
For the way you sense my sight even in a crowd when I look at you
For the way you hug me tight when pain sunk in even before I knew
Yet I hate you for changing the person I was

I still play with colors and read many novels
I roam around with my dear buddies all day long
And get to meet my parents any day I want to
For its your support that binds these all
Yet I hate you when you wake me up early morning

You held my hand and guided me through the dark
You reach to take out my fears and throw them away
You made me stronger and tougher by leaving my decisions to me
You stood by me whenever I was about to fall
Yet I hate you when you don’t like what I cook

Dear Husband,
I waited for a long to find you and its been years I found
Yet I am empty and incomplete; I still await ‘a complete me’
My patience has no end
I shall wait a lifetime
To enjoy our marriage that’s sweet and sour
For it’s just the two of us forever

takes time for marriages to work...and nothing but love and patience can bring two people together....
