My Valentine Tale
I loved that boy who made me my first paper boat,
I loved that girl who helped to keep it afloat.
I loved that bell which ushered the school vacation,
I loved that train which took me to a hill station.
I loved my cousins who took me under their wings,
I loved my brother who gifted those earrings.
I loved those days when my nonsense actions were not frowned upon,
I loved that place which embraced me as it’s own.
I loved my parents who endured my adolescence storm,
I loved that neighbour who baked a cake for our home.
I loved that mirror which announced me as beautiful,
I loved those books which made my reading joyful.
I loved that man who shamelessly kissed me,
I loved my friends who good- naturedly teased me.
I loved that rain which made me to cling to him,
I loved that moment which sealed my fate with him.
They often ask me,”Who then is your Valentine?”
A question which amuses and puzzles me all the time.
I guess my true being has evolved by those people,things, events and time,
Hence together they can sum up to be my Valentine.
