When The Stars Came Down


Is it true, my love?
Love precedes passion but passion tapers away
Interlocked fingers become passé
And framed photos replace fresh bouquet

If, that is so
Memories would be dear to me
Wrinkles will hold the giggles
Collected till our golden jubilee

Like love spun inside the fabric
Each thread will only get stronger with use
Body mellow, feelings ripe
But somehow it is all very different in youth

Different chattels we owned then, remember?
Some lasted merely a week
Like a hundred rupee slippers you bought me
From the roadside of Dunellen creek

Feet rollicked as I put them on
Though it made an awful sound
Like horse galloping angrily
On an uneven battleground

You slid your fingers into mine
Molting dusty road into a dream land
I went into a trance thereafter
Take My Breath Away played by an invisible band

There was no chariot to fancy
No chauffeur to drive us back to town
But to a starry-eyed lover the inside of your car looked
Like a thousand stars came down

You kept holding my hand
As I kept praying for few things
One, the day to never end
Two, to keep us together ever since

It seemed resplendent
But first passed through the hourglass
Second came true the day you took me
As your better half

From that day onwards
Myriad moments are there to frame
Since the stars came down that day
My life has never been same

Maybe 50 idyllic years, thereafter who knows what?
I go away first or you leave me in the lurch
But our love will be there
Immortal in my words

Pin It Now!

  17. Saru, I don't know what to say!

    Sometimes we have to prove that we are not just being 'Sugary' in our praises. Well.

    I won't praise it. I just loved it. Especially those 100 rupees slippers. You took me down in a dark memory lane!

    Too good
