"The hardest of all is learning to be a well of affection,and not fountain,to show them that we love them,not when we feel like it,but when they do"

It so happened..

This Entry is submitted by me for Thursday Poets Rally 41

A bubble of thought rises in his mind,
what if she..
A sigh left his lips in shear disappointment,
what if she..
A finger started writing something on the sand,
what if she..
A smile passed across his face as he saw,
what if she..
A heavenly feeling dawned upon him,
what if she..

She sat there besides him on the sand.
In her white dress,
her trinkets jingling happily.
As she brushed her hairs aside from her eyes,
her eyes met his and she couldn't stop her smile.

A word passed from him to her,
and the thought crossed his mind,
what if she..
She was attracted as if through some unseen energy,
towards his lips her lips brushed and submerged.
She withdrew them and said,
what if i..

His heart skipped a beat or two.
The breeze was silent and calm.
The waves rushed towards their feet.

She got up from there,
started walking away from him.
He murmured to himself,
did I finally say it?
I love you ..does she understand?

He gazed up into the endless sky.
And back on the waves his eyelids closed.
And he said to himself,
what if she..
and saw towards the direction she went..

She stood there,
the most beautiful girl in the universe.
Retracing her steps back,
she stooped low.
Mumbled in his ears,
I love you too..

beautiful. I think we are sometimes led to that moment in mysterious ways. In fact, I know we are, but as great as that moment is, and it truly is great, that is just the beginning of something and why not if that happens , why not just enjoy it intstead of thinking too much about what will happen after :))
I hope that doesnt sound tainted in any way!
