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.
