Its been five months.
Of being married.
Of a trip to the dessert and palaces
Of being away from my parents
Of being away from my sister
Of being away from my room
Of being away from my swing
Of just being.
Of sharing a room with a new roommate.
Of getting used to the new AXE smell
Of a new kitchen
Of new "rules"
Of breakfasts,lunches,dinners and coffee with a new family
Of calling new people as Amma Appa.
Of a new nephew who never ceases to make me smile.
Of a rose on and off
Of a brief period of sickness
Of all the care shown
Of the small fights
Of tears of homesickness
Of suddenly feeling that i am away from my friends too
Of suddenly spending loads of time with his friends and calling them my own.
Of the joy of seeing both sets of parents having lunch together
Of cooking with a mother-in-law discussing music
Of chatting with a sister-in-law for hours together
Of trips to temples.
Of uncontrollable mood swings
Of the chocolate ice cream at midnight
Of the new haircut
Of the unplanned Ooty trip
Of a gentle caress and a kiss when i am asleep
Of making list and shopping for groceries
Of the dozen concerts attended together
Of being cherished and treasured.
Of cherishing and treasuring.
Of admiring him in that new shirt of my choice
Of the flying kiss before going to office.
Of his sms saying something cute to remind me of him.
Of giving missed calls sitting next to one another
Of watching comedy movies and laughing away to glory.
Of suddenly remembering funny lines and reciting to one another.
Of the sudden protective hand-grip in a crowd
Of the random bouts of sulking
Of the bad cooking
Of the good cooking
Of new found love
Of his voice calling my name
Of the little moments of laughter
Of the comfortable silence.
Of a sudden unexpected hug
Of hope of a sweet future
Balaji,This one is for Us!!
