Love By Chance Or Love By Fate
Love By Chance Or Love By Fate2 mins 349 2 mins 349
Yesterday night, as we lay in each other’s arms,
You kissed me as usual
But asked me something unusual
“Do you think our relationship is a result of fate..
..Or is it a result of chance?”
I replied playfully with a kiss then
But here is the real reply - in your cherished written form..
Do you know how I found our favourite book, “Tuesdays with Morrie”?
I was exploring books under the ‘Arts’ title in the library
When a stack came tumbling down like a busy brook
In the grim and gloomy ‘Philosophy’ section..
I rushed there, to help the librarians lift and carry
After which they handed me their wise smile and that wiser book
As a token of bibliophilic affection..
Do you know how I discovered our favourite movie, “Notting Hill”?
I was transferring software files from a friend's hard disk
When I came across a hidden folder on top
Labeled “For Adult viewing only“..
Knowing my friend's taste and what made him tick
I slyly copied that folder to my laptop
Only to find an odd man out - that charming romantic movie..
Do you know how I first walked into our favourite cafe?
I was passing by the place when the Bangalore skies broke open
As if they had found the only perfect solution
To break off the hour-long traffic jams..
I peeped inside to find seashell chairs and walls painted like the ocean
And I stepped in to smell the aroma of a great coffee decoction
That opened the gates to my sensory dams..
Do you know how I became a writer?
A cousin of mine wanted to pursue her Masters in the US
Not for her ambition, but to avoid her marriage
And she wanted me to help her with the statement of purpose..
Little did I know that I would rediscover Ruskin Bond and Dr Seuss
Through an essay that seemed like an achievement carriage
And from there, I would go on to express my love for poetry and prose..
Do you know how I found you?
A friend and I had come to the college canteen
And there you were all alone
He pointed to you and remarked, "That's sad!"
But I thought you were in your happy zone..
My heart suddenly felt less lonelier
A voice in me whispered that my peace was near
I gathered the courage to walk up to you and say 'Hi!'
Thankfully you had come across my blog earlier
Else I cannot imagine what would have happened, Oh my!
So, what do you think is the answer?
Is it chance?
Or is it fate?
If it’s chance, let us visit the temple tonight
If it’s fate, then I propose a dinner date..
