That's Amore

You are....

the morning sun that streams through and lights up my world
the toothbrush sitting next to mine in a yellow cup
the damp towel flung carelessly across the bathroom floor
and the set of wet footprints leading away from the shower
the messed up closet, the misplaced comb
and the unfinished cup of coffee I find under the sofa
the milk in the cereal bowl that I finish up everyday
and the banana peel that sits on the counter for me to throw away
the hug and the kiss that rushes off to work
the missing car key that I look for each morning
the car at the stop sign that waits till I can catch up
the smile and the wave as I drive past
the concerned phone call that I get if I'm late reaching work
and the relief in the voice when I call every morning
the chocolate in my lunch box, the half eaten candy
the email that gets me smiling
the message that has me worrying
the reassurance that I look for
the call that has me waiting
the song that I am listening to while I'm driving back home
and the car that I keep seeing although I know it's not you
the smile that is waiting when I walk in through that door
the walk by the stream, the flower in my hair
the warm conversation
and the candle in my room
the take-me-out-to dinner
and the smile in my heart
the salad on the table and the mower in the yard
the treadmill in the basement
the toilet that needs fixing
the camera that takes my picture in a hundred different ways
the pictures on the wall that hang in a straight line
the matching cushion covers that lie on the floor
the wallet on the table that has my picture in it
and the carelessly tossed clothes strewn across the floor
the bottle of Jim Beam lying on the counter
the freshly cut amaryllis sitting on the table
the basil in the pasta, the extra spicy sauce
the package that gets delivered
and the surprise on my face
the hand that I'm holding when I walk down a narrow path
and the light that shines through when darkness engulfs
the hope that keeps burning
the answer to my prayers
the soft spot beside me where I can lay down to rest
the hope that keeps me going
and the words that warm my heart
the dreams I snuggle up to
and the last thoughts of the day

you're the
void in my heart right now
the tears in my eyes
the longing to be together
the missed heartbeat

and the one thing I want right now is for you to be back home where you belong.

Hopefully "Teri woh" is reading all this. Your love will carry him over the clouds and into your arms.... And hopefully there will soon be a post with the hearts in the right place, the heart that is warm, and the cheek that is still glowing from the tender kiss, and the back that bears the imprint of a good, solid hug....

Blogger M (tread softly upon) said...

@ anon I'm sure he does :) and he ought to even without having to read this.
@ little miss muffet thank you and also thanks for stopping by.
@ truth fairy thanks :)
@ born a libran I'm sorry to disappoint but I usually don't post photos here.
@ bharath LOL....I guess so. He'd wouldn't know what to say. But then it would be really weird to have two people spouting senti stuff don't you think?
@ qsg thanks sweetie and yes, there's always hope :)
@ illuminati this was even without the influence of M&Bs. Imagine what it would have been otherwise :)
@ vuttaa no offense taken :) Although the jhogra/ byagra/ gNuto was totally off the mark :)
