was shining like an aureole of an angel, glooming with the spark of
your love; I was smiling most effortlessly that day, glowing with
satisfaction and happiness.
day started with shy feelings, with butterflies in my stomach. The
attire, the makeover, the jwellery, everything was special and ethnic.
Between all this I was trying to imagine how things will go, that first
glimpse of you, and the first touch when you will ring my lucky finger.
I could not imagine how will you look, and I was sure neither could you
imagine me in bridal appearance.
time I entered the venue, I could feel a shimmer in every ones’ eyes.
People wanted to see me today, eye me in their excitement and wait for
few words that slipped from my smiling lips.
wait today was long, but tiredness was not felt in the way it used to.
Today smile was on, and I was as fresh as newly sprouted rose, in spite
of no appetite since a day. The time I stood up and came out of my veil
in a secure private room, every one turned towards me. In the beginning
it didn’t occur to me that this is going to be a walk of my life, I
should have better practiced ramp walk. I mended the walk of the lady
and approached the stage in a shy glamour. In next one hour I smiled
all the smiles of my life. I was smiling for all the moments we had
with each other, smiling for our love, smiling for you, as I knew you
were trying to look at me from the corner. In whole ceremony I kept
trying to get a look at my man, albeit it was difficult to turn my eyes
that side. My every move was noticed, my every breath marked.
you were actually invited to sit beside me, I just could not look at
you. The entire wait was over, but now I was too shy to pour my eyes
into yours. When you held my hand for the ring ceremony I wished time
to stop there, so that I could kiss you and express how much I love you
and will love you till I live. But then your ring was waiting, and you
were not an easy fiancé that time. I loved your playfulness when you
were taking away your hand or giving me wrong finger. With the shine of
ring the flashes of photographer clicked every expression of our faces.
After that the whole story was about clicks and smiles and balance till
we went for our meals. My first bite from your hands, it was my whole
lunch in a way. You were eating so well. I wished all
this mid time between engagement and marriage to pass in a blink so
that I can cook for you and see you eating so happily.
could feel I was one with you now. Even though we were together since
all these years, this feeling of oneness was incredible. Today I didn’t
want to ask you to hug me or stay a while longer. You were mine now and
those small desires had no room. Physical touch was not so important
any more. Our souls were embraced in unison, our aura diffusing into
you were leaving all I could do was look at you and smile. It was a
quick moment but that was the only way I could say I love you. I love
you Arpit. And I am now all yours.
