Love To Be Proud Of

The strength a “wife gives comes with a lot of courage, perseverance and love.

It requires more guts than anything else in this world to decide in your heart that come what may, I am going to stand next to my man!

We men do get bogged down a lot. Behind that male ego lies a continuous need for someone to pick us up and carry us through. These few lines are to thank my dearest wife “Suhani for being the better half of me – the only half worth being proud of !


Wandering in the darkness of the deepest alleys 

and yet to find someone who believes I exist. 

My faith is tied and my dreams all gagged up. 

I stretch my soul in ache. To die, I firmly resist.

There is a chill in my spine. I can barely pick myself up. 

Surrounded by emptiness and sounds of trembling breaths. 

I remind myself of the life you spoke of. 

I bleed of hope, still, as my consciousness shreds. 

I gather myself with the last speck of might. 

Let the bones break, but I must stand. 

You taught be to bear this pain and more. 

I must weave back every broken strand.

You are the courage that ignites me

and the comfort to sleep un-dead.

From my ashes, I’ll bring back the man you loved.

YOU conquer my every single dread.

    I still dont know what to say. The way you’ve described love, it has blown me off. And in a very good manner, mind it!
    I wish you both well always. And i hope this love only strengthens and explores its deepest depths with every passing day.
    Much love, and hugs to both of you! 🙂

      Thanks from Suhani and me !
      Why this thing came out good enough was because I did not try to express or define love for everybody. It was personal, true and dil se for her !

    I like men who appreciate their wife and clearly admit their married status. 🙂

    You too are a very good person, so for once fate brought two amazing people together forever.

      simplest thing we can do is to show our gratitude to love, life and god in our pursuit to be happy…
      …why should we hide our marital status ? I think getting married is the actual evolution of some random guy into THE MAN of her lady !
      I agree with you !!!

        these days neither men nor women are keen to openly flaunt their married status.

        they cleverly hide it often to flirt and break innocent hearts.

      • June 19, 2012 at 12:06 pm

        can’t see the reason why ? and what is the fun in online flirting ? Its like getting high by watching a picture of vodka for 6 hours ?
