How I Met My Soulmate: A Poem

cody-black-327757

As a wee girl of 15, when my dad teased me so,

“I will find you a man with a long beard and mo’”,

“You can’t do that to me, dad!”, I protested amidst tears

He laughed, hugged me tight and assuaged my fears

 

Little did I know, what the universe had in store,

After I’d kissed a few frogs, my prince arrived with his long beard in tow!

‘Twas the day I turned 25, my friend brought him along,

Despite my skepticism, he held my gaze strong

 

His confident stance and his first friendly greeting,

Cemented my desire for our next meeting

But alas he didn’t call/ message for 4 days!

Slightly upset, I decided to look the other way

 

On the fifth day when my friend called to set up a date,

I didn’t question why the call came so late

A successful double date with our friends,

Ensured that we made amends

 

The very next day, he asked me out for dinner,

I couldn’t refuse, I was all a dither

He took me out for a fancy meal,

I was nervous yet excited- was this the real deal?

 

He told me he doesn’t drink, but protested when I decided not to order one,

He quipped lightly, “just because I don’t drink, doesn’t mean you can’t have fun!”

His attractive personality and the ease of conversation,

Made the evening end on a note of elation

 

Our second date was a movie, where I had to make one thing clear,

I was only looking for something serious and dear

He could have run, yet he chose to stay,

Our real bond began that day

 

The number of dates increased slowly,

Until one day, in the parking lot of HKV,

He said, “There’s something I’ve been wanting to do”,

Pulled me close, kissed me, and sparks flew

 

I’d been kissed before, but never like this,

This was a soul connection hard to miss

Then there was no looking back,

Cupid came calling and that was that

 

3 months rode swiftly by,

New Year’s Eve crept up on the sly

He asked me to accompany him to the Gurdwara before heading out,

I was surprised but didn’t express my doubt

 

There, in front of my lord and master,

He bent on one knee, as my heart beat faster,

and asked for my hand.

My knees buckled, I could barely stand

 

With tears in my eyes,

I yelled “yes!” to the skies

I felt blessed to have him in my life,

I couldn’t believe this sweet, smart man was mine

 

The proposal paved the way for a whirlwind engagement,

And soon the wedding invitations had been sent

On 27 October 2013, we tied the knot,

Became man and wife at the Gurdwara, the same spot

 

Now 5 years on, our son has strengthened our love

More blessings have been showered from above

We sometimes fight and disagree,

But know that we are meant to be

 

Here I must end this poem today,

Do share it, if it touched you in any way

For this is the story, led by fate,

Of how I met my soulmate
