…when you realize that life is a bed of roses.
It’s all gotta do with BF. Sometimes, he simply ruins my routine….goes out of the way and does something which makes me realize how very lucky I am!!
BF happens to be one of those guys who are always at a loss of words…..the kinds who cant say in words what they feel. So he resorts to doing small things/favours. A few days back, out of the blue, he came home with a red rose for me.
Whats so special, you may well ask. It so happens, that being gifted a red rose was a regular ritual in our pre-marital days. He would never meet me without first getting me a rose. NEVER!! Irrespective of whether we met once a week, or a month or maybe 2 days in a row. The rose would be there. Post marriage (in a joint family) the ritual was broken…sad part is…I never even noticed
So recently , he got this rose….and me got all mushy about it (of course). After hugs&kisses I went back to my cooking. BF was in the bedroom, searching for something on the net. Shortly , he calls me in to listen to something. It was the song “Aaj din Chadiya…” from “love aaj kal”. I’d heard the song before and hadnt payed much attention to it . But BF played the song and asked me to listen carefully. And you know what?? Being held close, with his arms around me…listening to a lovely romantic number….interspersed with soft kisses on my head (BF is atleast a foot taller than me !!)….was such a lovely experience that I know my words here barely do any justice to it !!
After having the twins, our lives got so busy that we rarely got time for each other….and these rare moments of togetherness, closeness, of love are so precious to me…I think it’ll forever be etched in my mind….coz I experience them when I was actually craving for it…but was sadly unaware.
Thanks BF. You are truly special…in everything you do…..(except when u throw that wet towel on the bed!! I could soooo kill you everytime you do that!!!)
PS: I found the snap of the rose in my cellphone.Posting it here. BTW, it was taken a week after BF had given it to me.
