twenty five

they sat across each other, the world ceased to exist
she looked like a dream, too beautiful to resist
he grinned at her, literally felt her heart melt
and the way she smiled at him, he would never forget

would you like to dance, he asked with hope
she gave him her hand, stepped under the strobe
as they swayed, hearts pounding against chest
he knew he’d be taking her back to his love nest


dinner was a blur, dessert a connoisseur’s delight
both of them swallowed without tasting a bite
conversation flowed, the laughs were all real
the electricity between them, you could actually feel

they stood up to leave, holding hands like teenagers
he quietly looked her way as if to gauge her
then the clock struck twelve and he whispered in her ear
thank you for being my wife for twenty five years

Preeti Sharma said...

Nandita - Thanks dear. At the practice, but have a couple of other specialists over and so using the opportunity to increase my 'sitting around' time.

Abhi - Thanks. Er, not really trying to change my style. I've had poems here right from the time I started the blog. Or are you talking about the previous post??

Awww! Am feeling all mushy now!

Will you send this to the MIM on our 25th? Provided we get that far, that is... ;p

Preeti Sharma said...

B - You want ME to send this to the man YOU married on YOUR 25th? Is it just me or is there something very confusing about that proposition...Ofcourse you'll get that far, so please clarify what my exact actions need to be because I"m getting very nervous:-O

Preeti Sharma said...

Gauri - I know, it's picture perfect, aint it.

Dewdrop Dream - Thanks! Yes I am a cosmetic dental surgeon and that means that sometimes my patients get to hear my corny jokes :-)

DewdropDream said...

I like dentists who make jokes. and I like female dentists. The men just don't cut it with me. That sounds like a pun. Intended, then :D

Mamma mia! Me a mamma? said...
