“You don’t even know what love is”
This was the solitary thing she told me on that very last call, it felt like my heart was thumping a thousand beats per second, like I was falling endlessly towards something so deep that I will never ever reach to the bottom, my hands shaking while holding my phone watching the dealer, time was never so fast and slow together at the very same Moment, I was restless from inside, I wanted to scream out loud, “why?” “Whhhyyyyyyy???” Indeed I was screaming silently.
10 years have been today, I bought a ring today to propose someone, yes, I will make this girl my wife will all the felicity I can give her. She holds all the stars swimming in a dark ocean of love in her eyes when she looks at me, I have never felt the same when she touches me, her touch makes skip my breath, she is more beautiful than the sun and the moon, who have been bonded together till eternity, her hair flaunts in the air like feathers to her wings, yes, she is the one who makes me fly with her, I admire her to make love to me till the stars are born till the moon is in the sky, till the sun shines to the shores, I can’t even swear my life to her as it seems less and less with all the love I have for her. I admire her in her sleep, the way she holds my palm and cuddles me while sleeping, the warmth of her body leaning on mine gives me the strength and a reason to remain forever with her. The way her wrist rests on my chest feels like a feather from the angel’s wing. Her thighs on my thighs lock our body with soul United within. Yes, she will be the wife for life and beyond, if it has to be.
14 years passed by to that day, I am sitting on the balcony in this very beautiful morning along with my wife, the one I never thought I would have. When the angel rushes towards us with little steps and jumps into my lap to give me the most blissful kisses, yes, I have been gifted a daughter by my love, the skipping beats of my heart have been now complete.
this is something no riches can buy you. With all the kisses and hugs she asked: “what is love?”
To which I said, ” I don’t even know, what love is?”
“Pa, I love you” with a smile.
