My love just begun

When I heard the tip-tap

Of your footsteps then.

Through the grills it pop-up

On my ears immured at cell 98.

Then we met at the corridors

Of my asylum outside insanity

And now we’re meeting at the doors

Of our own asylum inside sanity

Everyday, since 1998.

Years have gone like last winter

Days have grown like our children

Even if, we haven’t grown yet

Gone years marked several changes

And now am not at all that girl at 98.

Once we were admitted there

As there were nothing for us

Within our broken hearts

Than the back cracks of pains

Until our hearts met in 1998.

You filled my heart with love

I shared my love with you.

Beyond any medical treatment

You healed me, I healed you

With our love at 98.

Now you’re a doctor

Not of heart but of mind

Who always suggest

Love mania to treat mania of mind

With the lessons of your life in 1998.

I agree you thousand times

Because I know how your love

Coloured my life with VIBGYOR

Till now, we have painted

Zillions of memories with our love98.

Yes we call our life as love 98

Then named our house as love 98

Because love is such a powerful wave

Which can vanish any pain, heal any vein.

Alike how it draws our bliss in 1998.

I asked him by lying on his lap

“why stupid you’re laughing?”

Oh no baby! You’ve recited an amazing poem.

Stupid! It’s not a poem – it’s our story

But dear, it’s rhyming with our love98.
