The Wedding Day (part-1)
Here’s the link and if you have read it already then you can proceed here.
Mom took my hands and led me outside
No noise, no voice, no celebrations foreside..
I noticed all eyes were on me staring
All I heard was people’s humming..
My heart was acting insane
The breaths, the beats, the brain..
Dad was standing in front of a flower decorated car
It was HIS, which was still unrevealed star..
I rolled my eyes at it all over in some expectations
The jasmines and roses, beautiful combinations..
Dad bowed head as he looked at me
I still didn’t got why everyone was looking at me..
I looked and gave a quick smile to dad curiously
He didn’t moved but looked at me restlessly..
“What happened?” mom asked when she came
I smiled in confusion and gestured the same..
He opened the door I was waiting for
The door I always dreamed and lived for..
There was the person I was willing to see
My future, my groom, my devotee..
My smile went bigger but dad didn’t responded
I took steps further to welcome him and greeted..
Mom asked the same if he could tell
But dad still was the same like he didn’t heard the yell..
I looked again in the car nervously
He wasn’t moving an inch even partly..
I bowed head to see as I got closer
My heart stopped and time got slower..
He was pale, pure and still
God, his eyes were closed and mine filled..
I looked at dad and again at him
“Dad he is not looking at me” I whispered
“He is not listening to my words” I whispered..
No replies I got in result
No words I got in return..
I kept asking hundreds of questions
It was like no one was giving me attention..
My body felt weaker as I don’t want to realize
My precious love, my better half is demised..
I noticed marooned henna on my hands
Wondered if he could find his name on its grands..
I wasn’t ready to face this extraordinary sorrow
It was like God has took everything he allowed me to borrow..
“No, please.. just no…” I whispered
“Please say something to me.. please!” I whispered..
Some people gathered to take him out of the car
I was just staring at him, my only leading star..
I wore a maroon lehnga and all the matching jewellary with it
He was wearing white Sherwani and matching shoes with it..
We were looking perfect
But God seems to be upset..
He was lying in front and not looking at me
And I was pretending all day that he will smile at me..
The butterflies I felt every time I saw him
Are dead now just like his soul met the rim..
I dreamed of every single thing of after marriage
The kids, the work, the happiness and affordable carriage..
I literally didn’t believed he was gone
Someone told it was a car accident across the road..
He went to buy something he said ‘important’
The tear I felt on my cheek was inexplicably instant..
I closed my eyes and saw him smiling
Just like we first met and exchanged sweet hurtings..
I felt myself tumbled on the ground harshly
The pain, the cries, the screams loudly..
Just after my eyes closed and met him again
I saw him standing next to me in kingdoms of heaven..
We both were in whiten long outfits
Holding each other’s hands fearless and explicit..
That was the moment we gazed our eye’s ashen
In the presence of Almighty, we hitched in heaven ..
