There was a time when we talked in hushed whispers behind the bushes; endeavoring our best to camouflage our bodies from the extraneous world,
While today we sat closely beside each other under brilliant daylight; entwining our palms formidably against each other; blatantly in the midst of the bustling streets.
There was a time when we waited for marathon hours to meet; anxiously anticipating the sun to set down in the hills before we started for our clandestine expeditions,
While today we spent each moment together; with our breaths drifting down passionately without the slightest of synchronized control.
There was a time when we painstakingly craved to hear each others voices; trying to frantically search our memory as far as possible to salvage the last word we spoke,
While today we indefatigably talked till our tongues ached; conversed about the weirdest topics in this world; our eyes locked immortally with each other.
There was a time when we cordially smiled in front of the society; to depict that we were nothing else but good friends of after school,
While today we laughed to our hearts content philandering euphorically through the labyrinth of mystical valleys; leaving the civilized planet forever; well behind our times.
There was a time when we yearned to see all rays relinquish completely in our dwellings; so that we could surreptitiously meet and sight each other for a short while under milky moonbeams,
While today we admired each other to the most unprecedented capacity of our minds; in tenaciously fiery and flamboyant full house lights.
There was a time when we witnessed each other with stooping eyes; profoundly mortified by each others presence in front of our revered elders,
While today we danced in ebullient energy even after midnight; with our lids incorrigibly refusing to bat the tiniest; gazing wide open till unsurpassable
There was a time when we ate our food in separate plates; ardently remembering each other; with tears welling up in our eyes as we nostalgically reminisced our playful times,
While today we fed each other with our own hands; sat at whisker length distances with our lips profusely intermingled; entirely oblivious to the unfurling of rapid time.
There was a time when we were petrified to see to each other without prior permissions; as we knew that the ramifications of that could be punishment upto the
While today we waved at everybody on the roads with uninhibited freedom; audaciously proclaiming to the world the tales of our invincible romance.
And there was a time when we had newly met; said 'I Love you' to each other; were groping to find our veritable places; blend with the Herculean struggle to blissfully survive in this colossal globe,
While today we had just tied the nuptial thread; bonding our mind; body; soul for centuries immemorial; drifting in a world wholesomely of our own; in the realms of sacrosanct marriage.
