Prelude To Our Love


I saw her for the first time
In the old red-rose garden
My heart like a bell, chimed
Was she, an angel from heaven?

Was I in a fairyland
Or was it a dream? I wondered
To check, I pinched my hand
It was real, my senses answered

Her heart, I longed to win
And wanted her in my arms
I took a step, my legs felt thin
As I compared myself to her charm

The wait seemed an eternity
My vibes for her grew
I would die for this beauty
But what to do now, I had no clue

I would talk to her, I resolved
Guiding my feeble legs towards her
Nearing her, my utopia dissolved
And I wished to be a little braver

What a graceful smile on her face
Everything seemed still and
My heartbeat took up the pace
When she asked "Would you be my friend?"

"I took a step, my legs felt thin
As I compared myself to her charm".. If you had not written it down for us, I would not have known that a man can feel that way for a girl that he is charmed by.. :) Lovely poem, hope the story ends beautifully too.. !
Good piece!!

Very lucky Guy by having an offer of friendship at first sight.
It is difficult in real world from girls, specially coming from heavens.
Nice poem, dream and hope to youngsters and beginers.
Enjoy your new found love.
Happy rally
