The Wingless Angel who owns my Heart


 I saw him every morning,

I saw him every night;

When I thought he wasn’t looking,

I feasted at his sight.

Tall and kind and charming,

He was the white knight;

A glance here, a smile there,

He made people swoon in joy.

Intelligent and hardworking,

Successful in work and life;

He was the perfect man,

In everyone’s eyes.

Oh, I have watched him grow from a boy,

Seen him stumble and jump and fly,

From the peripheries of his world in silence,

I have watched him all my life.

To him I was just a classmate,

Someone he hardly knew,

How I wished he could read people’s hearts as well,

Then he would know where my love flowed.

Not pretty enough to match him,

Not friend enough to openly say,

All I could do is love him,

In my own lonely silent way.

People say, love is blind,

Not the choice of a practical person,

I say, what different is love from hate,

If all you see is rhyme and reason?

He returned my love with simple memories,

Unknowingly playing his part,

I treasure those innocent joys of my life,

Along with the little memory,

Of the wingless angel who owns my heart.

      Well, Madhu that is sweet of you to say, but the credit for this beautiful poem goes to my friend and co-founder and co-author of this blog, Sneha (animate7). So i rightfully confer your sweet comment on her. But still good to have enthusiastic people around feels great. 😀
