We had fallen in love…
Madly … Deeply.. Truly..
Our love acknowledged at once
Knotted with the bonds of togetherness
Bound to the reality of society
We were Responsible for the family
Balancing our life the in soberity
Its time to set a sign of love- They said
Its time to get a gift of God- They believed
It will be a boon to cherish- They persuaded
Its an achievement of trust- They relieved
It started growing in me slowly and slowly..
Within my womb gradually , deliberately
Was I ready? Were we ready to handle the new responsibility?
1 week gone…
Is this what God wants? I ask myself
No! Says my voice to me
Its not about God-Its what you want -says me
Will I be punished for breaking the trust on our love? Questions to myself looms up
No! Where love exists- there is no doubts on trust at all
What if the society does not accept us anymore? Fears me
What if you fail to take the responsibility at all? Questions back myself to me
You are still young to cherish your love again
Think well before you decide
You want happiness and not pain.
There is no togetherness you cannot abide
I say to myself – Its alright to wait
I say to my husband- We already have our present life to appreciate
Yes! Our love is endless- says he
Yes! We shall revive it again- says me
The candles of joy will indeed light
A new day is yet to come after this night
Smiles ignited in our relationship and love We knew- we were able to set it all right
There is nothing wrong – we realized
I know I took the right decision today
Safe Abortion is what we had chosen
And the future is going to be all Okay.
