I knew it well

Things do not favor me

It was a life and death question

I hoped for good //

I was always praying the Almighty

To clinch the marriage issue

I like no untoward incidents

I was little bit apprehensive //

Doubted my ensuing in-laws

I was observing their psychology

Time was rolling out

I was in full control with deep thoughts //

I was looking at my wrist watch

Observing the Time & date

I was disappointed for few days

I thought for a while //

To swim in the Life Sea

To reach the Life Shore //

I like to swim in the Sea

To reach the Sea Shore //

I thought, never to give up

Hopes always live with hopes

I had a detailed discussion

I had exciting talk //

I was relieved from tension

I asked uncle

Sought for marriage alliance with Uncle’s son

I want to settle in life //

Run the family with peace of mind

Hubby has better principles in life

I recouped with heavy breath

Prepared for countdown days //

I made gate dash for clinching my issue

Observed bridegroom’s father carefully

He walked to the door

I knew, time was running out //

Suppressed the urge to check my watch

I took a deep breath

Started counting in reverse under my breath

Like, ten, nine, eight, seven, six to zero //

Though perturbed, kept my mind balanced

Came to the sense

Requested for a glass of water

Settled down for few seconds to ease tension //

My heavy breath has calmed down

Had sigh of relief

My inner sense told me to observe the wrist watch

Watching the psychology of boy’s parents //

The inner ‘sacred soul’ told me to speak very softly and politely

Prepared for any eventuality in this crucial issue

Consoling my heavy inner heart

Trying to cool down my brain //

I was able to pacify myself

Able to remember my friends telling me that –

After the storm, there is always calm

After the sunshine there are showers of rain //

With this self-advocacy and self consoling

Able to settle-down after some time

Able to manage crucial moment & time

Urged Aunty & Uncle to perform this marriage soon //
