“Look at Her, She’s glowing!”, Said an aunt of mine
As I woke up & walked in sunshine..
My heart was acting insane
The breaths, the beats, the brain..
As I rolled my eyes on the decorations
The orange & yellow flowers, beautiful combinations..
I noticed marooned henna on my hands
Wondered if he could find his name on its grands..
I could feel the different mild air
The day was more bright and fair..
The music being played all night long
The dances, the whistles, the celebrations along..
I can’t believe it’s the day
The day we have planned so far..
He and I will get hitched today
So many years, waited for this day..
“Get ready my baby girl”- heard a voice
My mom stared at me with a rejoice..
Her eyes were wet I could see though
I tried to hug her but she said me to go..
I left her in the lawn crossing all the relatives
Thinking about my Lehnga and all those imperatives..
Excited, nervous and happy I reached the room
Scattered stuff on my bed made me bloomed..
The make-ups, the bangles, the jewellery and sandals
My glittering eyes and thoughts got more tangled..
My best friend was there helping me to get ready
The pressure of looking good was killing me already..
I heard some loud noises out of the window
She opened the door glancing at them and bingo!..
“HE’s here” she giggled and ran closer to me
My heart skipped and I can’t tell was it my happiness, or just HE..
I looked in the mirror and there was someone else
Is this me or any other girl who just got out from the shell..
“You are looking beautiful” -she said
“He won’t take his eyes off of you” –she said..
I just smiled back and held her hands tightly
My mom entered with a smile but more brightly..
She was looking so happy I can’t express
She came closer to me leaving behind all the stress..
I hugged her back as I wanted that much to be
I looked again in the mirror still not believing if it’s me..
“You’re looking so pretty today” mom said in a broken voice
I glanced at her eyes resembling with the previous noise..
“Mumma please don’t cry” I said in my sobs
I could see my past life hiding in fogs..
I thought about the new life and the new character
My new story will be quoted as “happily ever after”..
