February 4, 1987.

We are all of seven,

Play all day, sing to high heavens.

Irritating person, you are always around.

You stick your tongue out when I slip, fall to the ground.

.

March  15, 1993.

At thirteen you see.

Geometry is a mystery to me.

I’ve forgotten to complete an assignment,

Tucked in my folder , I find one, imagine my excitement!

.

December 24, 1995.

Oh! This  is divine.

We share our first kiss, sublime.

I want more but you resist.

โ€˜Cannot you be happy with a deep, wet kiss?โ€™

February 10, 1997.

Higher studies, career even,

Take you away, leaving me broken.

Long distance relationships are not for me.

I need you here, constantly,  why cannot you see?

.

June 30, 2001.

Two torrid affairs, not one.

I donโ€™t seem happy, I come undone.

Something is amiss in my life.

Even though career-wise I am doing just fine.

.

August 23, 2003.

I spy you at a party.

Tall, handsome, yet like old times, lanky.

Our eyes meet, memories! A fleeting glance.

At worldly- wise 23, my heart did a flip-flop, a dance.

.

November 13, 2010.

We have grown so much since then.

You are my lover, my best friend.

Wish we hadnโ€™t lost so much time,

Been foolish. Now happy that you are mine.

.

Our children are almost full grown.

Ready to face the world on their own.

Did you see our tween daughter take a fall?

And the teen boy from next door, laugh out loud!
