From my kitchen to yours

From my kitchen to yours

Monday, May 26, 2014


We are all born equal..
And that's the way it should always be ..
No class, no caste, no religion or societal status..
Should come in the way of this beautiful thing we call humanity..

We were born out of love ..
And hence that's what is in our DNA ..
And that is exactly where sometimes we differ..
There are the haves and the have-nots ..
The ones that have love in their souls and the ones who have no idea about love ..

Why is it that more often than not..
It's love that we all crave ..
But when it comes our way ..
We actually pull out all our defences..
And make a whole lot of excuses..
And wonder whether we should accept it or just walk away.. ..

Peace, love and misunderstandings ..
That's the name of the game ..

There are no happily ever afters..
Except in story books ..
That are written by people like you and me ..
Who were waiting and searching for this great love eternally ..

But you can have a happily ever "now"..
That's the way it should be ..

And so instead of putting up my guard ..
And keeping myself secure..
I have left my heart open ..
To summers , winters , spring and autumn..
To the wonders that visit me in this life all year..

I'm not going to try and make sense of stuff I can't understand any more..
All I know is ...

We all have a right ..
To love and be loved ..

It is our circle of life ..
And in this life time ..
We will experience this ..
At least once ..
If not more than twice ..
It all depends on us being nice ..

There are souls you will meet ..
Who will smile deep into your eyes..
And caress your senses like a feather on a cool autumn night ..

There is a deliberate purpose and a definite path..
That we all have to walk ..
Even in the dark ..

Sometimes you walk towards the one you love ..
But reach a dead end ..
Maybe because what you thought was a deep love ..
Is actually just a friend ..
Who came to open your heart ..
And take you down a path..
And get you ready to meet the love of your life ..

The thing about love ..
Is that sometimes ..
We break our hearts..
And sometimes reach the deepest part of the dark..
And sit there quite alone ..

It is here that you will really find love ..
Because it is woven with silken threads ..
Knitted tightly together...
Making us whole ..

We are perfect
Just as we were always meant to be ..
We come here alone
And will walk away exactly like that..
Most naturally ..

But along the way..
We will find a soul...
That fits right next to ours..

Not broken ..
Not incomplete..
Not like a piece of the puzzle missing ..
But like the sunshine on a beautiful day ..
Like the luminosity of the moon..
Or the breeze that makes the clouds dance away..
That just makes it all better than it was..

That kinda love ..
Organic, natural ..
The kind that just makes it's way into you, without asking for permission, without trying too hard..
Who brings out the best in you ..

The type where you discover things about you that you never knew ..
The kind of love that makes life all technicolor and also loves the grey ..

Who cuddles you when it a cloudy day ...
Who loves your burnt nose..
As much as your freshly bathed hair ..
Who loves you for who you are are..
Not what you may or may not say..
Who looks at you across a crowded room ..
And delves deep into your eyes..
Who kisses your lips with beautiful sighs..
Who can look beyond your skin and into the crevices of your soul ..
Who knows you may be broken ..
But loves your tender delicate soul...
Who knows..
The difference between your truth and your lies ..
Who holds you close ..
Even before you are about to cry ..
Who thinks your laugh lines lead up to a path to explore..
And your wrinkles are to be adored..
And your stretch marks are actually your tigress stripes..
Who does not play games unless it's on a field with other boys ..
Who respects you enough to treat your heart like it were his own ..
And to know when you need a shoulder to lean on even if you want to be left alone ..

Yes it's difficult to love...
If you expect all the above ..
If you do find it ..
It's the cherry on the cake..
If not ..
Does not mean you just give up on the bake ..

So keep it simple ..
Just love, who you love ,regardless ...
No false promises nor truth with under tones of lies..
After all..
Love is only about love ..

It's not about what you say ..
But mostly about how you make make me feel ..

It's very simple..
Because this will only be felt , by you and me ..
