As this music plays in the background, I feel his arms wrapped around me with his chin resting on my shoulders. The softness of those lips and the roughness of his stubble makes the perfect ingredient for me to raise my other shoulder to my cheek with a dash of blush and a hint of smile.
The soft whispers tickled my ear and I closed my eyes…. I opened it back to a reality where he existed only in my memories of the Love story which spanned over months. “I finally understood what true love meant…love meant that you care for another person’s happiness more than your own, no matter how painful the choices you face might be.”*
One tear rolled down my cheek and it is not the first time that I am letting them out for him. My tears haven’t done justice to me even though I let them flow as and when they wanted to. Every moment of me yearning to catch a glimpse of him makes me feel like 16 again.
‘Out of Sight’ is often predicts the state ‘out of mind’. I managed to prove even this famous theory formulated by my friends wrong for me. Instead, I feel that “Sometimes you have to be apart from people you love, but that doesn’t make you love them any less. Sometimes you love them more.” **
Someday, I will get married…have a husband and bear his babies…have my own family but my part of the heart, where I have safely secured him, will remain within me forever. And if the strength of the soul is so proved, I am hopeful that we cross paths again and share a moment of the love which once was between us ~ a moment when I tell him what I regret not telling him what I should have long back. “I Love You”
I am grateful that “We fell in love, despite our differences, and once we did, something rare and beautiful was created. For me, love like that has only happened once, and that’s why every minute we spent together has been seared in my memory. I’ll never forget a single moment of it.”*
