Here’s a poem I wrote for my wife (we call her Mini at home) on her 37th birthday, hope you all like it:
My dearest Mini,
It’s been a while, the way I’ve seen you grow,
not once, twice or thrice,
but multiple times in a row!
You’ve shown resilience and strength,
even during the times when you were low,
you’ve acted upon fast,
while everybody around was slow!
You’ve been hurt at times,
but you bring a smile to every face around,
no matter what the world say or think,
I’ll always love you for holding your ground!
From being a ‘quick to react’ person to a concerted listener,
you’ve moved the needle at an early stage,
from ‘living with others’ to ‘living for others’,
you’ve set the bar at a very high stage!!!
I’ve loved you always,
I’ve started feeling you more now,
even when you are not around,
I can hear you in my heart somehow!!!
Today you turn 37 while I’m 39,
I proudly say, forever you are mine!!!
