I’m sitting by the window, having watched DDLJ for the umpteenth time, and thinking to myself, so did I marry my RAJ? Hmmm..Well I’m no SIMRAN ..only thing common between me and the movie was Kajol’s UNI-BROW ;-)
Was in my 9th std, when DDLJ released and my innermost poet unleashed as well. Wrote a poem to describe my “khwabon mein aanewala”..so cheesy..btw that’s how I like my Burger..so here goes:-
Somewhere in the midst of sea of faces
He’ll be there waiting for me so kind and gracious
Someone for whom I’ve longed so much
He’ll be the one to melt me with his touch.
Sometimes when life itself will be miserable
He’ll be there with his smile to fight my troubles
All along the way, I’ve waited for someone who would understand me
He’ll be there to share the joy and the pain with me.
There are so many questions to which no answer do I find
He’ll be there to stand just by my side
When he won’t be near and the distance apart
He’ll be there, the one, whose memories will tear me apart.
Just to see him talk and smile
He’ll be the one with whom years will pass in a while
Of whom I dream forever in my sleep
He’ll be mine, just MINE, for Keeps!
Now almost 22 years later, the movie and the poem both take me back to the time, where everything was possible. I was still a teenager, who was raised like a Princess. Loved, Pampered, without a care in the world. Now, even though I’ve graduated to a Queen and live in my sweet little kingdom with my King and children, still in my hearts of hearts, I’m the same little Princess, reminiscing about my teenage dreams. I love those thoughts and memories, as they are mine, just MINE, for Keeps!
