It all started one evening, When it was heavily raining. I like the rains too much, The drops are amazing to touch. Didn’t knew there was someone else too, Who loved the rains as much as I do. She had arrived newly as neighbour, Beside my flat, a lucky favour. She stood there too enjoying the rains, I was paused and just looking at her. She was a complete stranger, And yes I was her neighbour. She looked as if the morning sunshine, Pretty, sweet and beautiful as the red wine. She noticed me, and looked at me, I turned away, feeling ashamed totally. She was a beauty never seen before, Through my eyes went to my heart core. After a break she said hi, I turned around and replied hesitatingly bye. She raised her eyebrow, I lowered mine down, I closed my eyes and said hi looking down town. Thus it all started that evening, The balcony love, an amazing thing.
Next morning we met again at balcony, Prayers from her mouth seemed like symphony. Then she said, "good morning", I looked at myself I never had such early bathing. I replied the same and went inside, To take bath so early was itself a pride. Then all over the day I thought of her, Trying to divert but everything seemed blur. We met again in the evening at the balcony, Now I went only for one thing to see. She talked a bit and I couraged the same, She was so friendly and so no one to blame. A silence arrived as her mom called, I just looked at her and continued to behold. We talked about the setting sun, I could only hear a pretty song sung. She smiled on something I said, I thought again what I just said. Whatever it was she was smiling, A live Monalisa coming out from painting. Slowly slowly the night fell, We wished good night and take care well. That night I didn’t sleep and was awake, Thinking whatever just happened was it fake?
It all went many days long, We grew from strangers to friends strong. But things began to grow more complex, As sometimes we went close to unrest. That balcony now was special to both, Didn’t knew of her, at least for me like a flower to a moth. We talked about everything and all, And shared our feelings but never made love a call. Suddenly it all happened one day, When once again it was raining in may. She was wet with rain and me too, Closeness between us tremendously grew. I felt it perfect to kneel down, And say to her that I loved her eyes brown. Say to her that I loved her hair long and black, And her lips, her nose and her ears with earrings black. Say to her all I felt for her, And confess with the red roses fur. But the heart was thumping hard and fast, Shivering I knelt down with the thunder blast, And said to her, "I Love you", With lightning she replied, "I love you too !". This is the balcony now where I stand, She is beside me, holding my hand !
