Can love be arranged???

Once when the weather was all about rains,
And love was all we thought when we switched on our mains…
That same question came to our mind,
Does love always have to be blind?
Can love be arranged?
But why did it seem so strange…

Yes was the answer we heard,
When the experiences our parents shared…
We knew love is a spectacle,
Yet about an arranged one we were skeptical…

For love stories were like singing & romancing in the rains,
All about winning over the opposing villainous brains…
But our parents were to be proved right,
As we got the good news in the night,
The minds & our eyes shining bright,
Our plans began to fly as high as a kite,
Though unable to see the couple which was still out of sight…

The days kept passing,
And so the excitement kept rising,
Along with the endless future planning,
For we kept eyeing,
The day we would click the new couple & the whole family together smiling…

Finally our dreams had a sunrise,
A big surprise…
Against the tide,
The couple had arrived…
They looked so in love,
Like a pair of white dove,
The understanding immense,
Though sometimes with a lot of dignified silence…

As was proved a fact,
That opposite attract,
The guy full of jokes and chatter,
And the gal full of mind over matter,
The guy so kid dish at times,
But the gal so mature to grow him up all the time…

To the almighty we pray,
Night and day,
That they stay,
Happy together,
No matter how the weather,
So that many years later,
When the children of theirs,
Question us the very same,
We would be able to take their name,
Love that god gave birth,
Yet it was arranged
And blossomed
On this very earth…

  8. Awww!

    Love or marriage.. Whichever comes first, it is important that the other follows... Love isnt the most imp thing in marriage and marriage isnt the most imp in love!

    If 2 people are committed to make it work...it WILL work!

    Im glad to know some1 thinks along these lines!!! :)

    The guy full of jokes and chatter,
    And the gal full of mind over matter
