I have got to tell her what i feel for her. This is 'The Moment'. I can't miss it.
Slowly, I took her hand into mine. I took a deep breath, closed my eyes once and thought I should have rehearsed this once. She didn't turn towards me. She was gazing at the horizon, capturing the 'Sea-Sunset' in her eyes.
I began, "You know whenever I see you, I feel more Alive.. I feel as if the whole world is meaningless without you in it, as if I am seeing one of the most beautiful creations of God. I feel to say aloud, "Yes! God exists, He created you".
"I want your face to be the one I see every morning when I wake up. With you beside me, I may not fight against the whole world, but I am more positive, more hopeful.I gain strength to fulfill my goals and enthusiasm to chase the new dreams."
"You add colors to my boring routine life. Office, project deadlines, traffic, future plans... worries... everything will vanish when I see your magical smile. No matter in how bad condition I am, when I think of you, my heart fills with gratitude."
"If there's someone who can be the words for my silence, it's you. I am not perfect but I am complete with you. I may not be the lead character of your novels and the inspiration behind your poetry, but i wanna be the first reader of your writings.... I wanna be with you forever, till we make it to grave and even after that... forever... "
There's something paining in my throat, my heart is filled.. as if there should be tears in my eyes but they are not... I say, "I love you.." and I turn towards her...
She's looking at me, with wide-opened, hypnotizing eyes. I don't know since how long she's looking at me, I was too carried away in my own speech... Is she having tears in her eyes? Or it's just the reflection of setting sun... I was about to ask if she is OK and before that something happened.. something very beautiful - She leaned over me, gently pressed her soft lips to mine and kissed me deep.
Now I swear I don't remember what all I spoke. I just know my heart is beating fast, my head is filled with a pleasant smell and she's in my arms.....
"Are you weeping? Are you....", I asked.
"Shh.. " she kept her finger on my lips, smiled and said, "Happy Anniversary"...
"Oh!.. I forgot the most important line of my speech, that was supposed to be said after I love you. I saw your eyes and... "
"It's okay sweetheart. That was the best gift a wife can get from her husband on their First Marriage Anniversary.", She said with her Magical smile. I added, " I wish I had got an opportunity to propose you, but our parents just gave us options to say Yes or No.. anyway.. I found my Love, Arranged."
"Hmm... By the way some words felt already heard or read..." she said as she winked.
"I don't know.. I don't remember anything you know... I think you can kiss me again and help me recall ". I dragged her into my arms. She blushed, shied and complained that people are watching.
"Come lets go... the night is young and a candle light dinner is waiting for us. we can't afford to be late."
"Really?? Tell me what else have you planned. I don't wanna have a heart attack...."
"Just be with me and you will know", I grinned.
"I love you"...
"I love you too"...
"I love you three... "
The Sun had vanished, it was getting dark and we walked together, holding each other's hand... towards our beautiful life....
