The First of Many

All too soon, a year has passed-
That's three hundred and sixty five
Days of love and laughter,
Days I've felt alive.

I still remember that evening,
That very first butterfly,
At the first chivalrous hello 
From a dashing, sexy guy.

All those miles between us
Disappear once every second-
With every word we text
You were right here, I reckoned. 

The plans we make, the trips we take,
The secret code we speak-
You know just what to say and do
To make this girl's knees weak. 

Won't you stick around for 50 more?
Let's make each one as grand!
Can't wait to share them all with you,
My sweet to-be husband. 

Nirvana Together

Nirvana, nirvana.
We went in search of it. 
Forging our solitary paths
In search of the Only Peace.

You in the blazing deserts,
Overturning every grain of sand,
In search of ultimate knowledge,
For to know, to learn, is to be.

I upon frozen mountains,
Looking for the lost spark,
Knowing it may never come,
Tolerance is the way I see.

And then we met, we became
Fire and Ice, Yin and Yang,
Changing the way we See,
That's Nirvana to me.

Of Idols and Shields

I'm so glad you aren't
One of those superhuman
Stone idols with feet of stone. 
They are perfect, it is true,
With their chiseled ideals
And strong arms that protect one
From the outside world. 

But what if the mistake's mine?
A clash against those rigid arms
Right though they may be,
Will only cause 
Pain to me and cracks to you. 

No, I'm glad you are, my idol,
Not of stone through and through. 
Your inner softness is so pure,
It's the very thing
That draws me to you.

Now I know I'm safe.
Your arms will defend me
Against the cruel world.
Yet I'm of use too,
To protect your softer self.
You defend me and I you -
A perfect shield we'll be.

SERENDIPITY

Soon there won't be words to describe
Every feeling I feel when you make me smile. 
Reaching deep down, today, I make
Efforts to pen down my blissful state. 
Now I know how true love fares - when
Distance tries to hide the way we care. 
I see we grow from strength to strength. 
People like us, we're meant to be. 
I've said this before, I'll say it again -
To me you're much more than a Valentine:
You're the love of my life, my peace, my joy.

Today

Strange! Lived my whole life 
Without you. Now a day seems
An eternity.
