That First Sight!

Two pairs of eyes meet –

And there’s an instant connection.

Sparks fly wild – two dry stones struck together –

Dried leaves and twigs catch fire.

The Fire thus instantly kindled,

Burns on in the two attracted hearts;

Yet a Chill runs down each spine,

Never realizing its neighbor’s presence!

Shaky, lingering glances ensue,

Lips arched in an inverted rainbow—

The separation though negligible,

Seems like a thousand miles.

Neither pair of eyelids bat,

A transfixed expression contains each face,

The legs— were they ever so heavy?

They had never walked so many miles!

The lips and the eyes do the famed trick,

A jugglery of sorts—

In tandem they reassure the other,

And the distances diminish!

They inch closer, two bodies – one soul,

The union blessed by its Maker.

Still smiles are all that fly,

Words lose all importance!

Each gazing into the other’s eyes,

The same famous question—

It needn’t be asked—

The answer is ‘Yes!’

Hand in hand, they walk on,

To be together all their lives—

Into the distant horizon—

The journey – it lasts a million miles!
