She liked him a lot.
But he wasnt kind-hearted
He hurt her pride
by joking about how
the funny looking girl
had dared to ask a handsome guy
he would say.."a girl ..that girl"
and talk on about
how she cried like a monkey
the day he rejected her....
But she wouldn't yet give up
So she kept taking the jokes
and sometimes laughed at it herself
and everybody noticed how good she was
she didn't talk ill of him
she was glad that love had found
its way into her heart
and if it wasn't reciprocated
the way she wanted it to
she knew better than to cry about it
but she also chose to not retort
to all those jokes..
and there at that moment
she chose not to retort
she began laying inroads into his heart
he began to see beyond the funny appearence
that in her lay a beautiful heart
filled with compassion and forgiveness
slowly she was entering his heart
he couldnt help it
she didn't even speak a word with him
her silence seemed to say a thousand things to him
oh! did he metamorphosize.....
and when he longed to hear beyond the silence
and when the jokes were a piece of history
he told her a sorry..a heart felt sorry...
and put forth a hand of friendship...
as he knew, that the kind heart would accept
she did, and slowly he expressed his admiration
she smiled that ever-so-good smile
and days passed by, he spoke of his affection
she was glad that it was reciprocated
she knew that unconditional love pays..
and pay it did
and he loved her like she wanted him to
he looked forward to listening to that sweet voice
and that heart-shattering smile..
did she change into that charming angel or was it him?
he didnt bother..all that he knew and cared for
was that he had found his true love
and the love grew in his heart..she could see it in his eyes
he melted like a candle burning bright at the sight of her
and so as days passed by .......
he went down on one knee and spoke those words
those very words that she wanted to hear
those very words that he had been saying a thousand times
over and over in his heart..till he found the right time to ask her
earnestly he looked into her eyes and asked her
"will you marry me?"
She laughed hysterically
He understood..nothing need be said
He understood the pain he had inflicted in her heart
For he felt the same searing pain....
