This poem has been written for Rekha, my wife of 10 years. All those girlfriends who read this poem and fall in love with me again thinking it was written for them…I am really sorry. I wish this Happy Valentine’s Day poem was for you. My Valentine this year is my wife.
So here goes the Happy Valentine’s Day poem for my wife of ten years –
Happy Valentine’s Day my dear wife
Rekha, even as you sleep,
I sit before the comp,
Feeling my heart beep.
It has been ages I wrote a poem,
But I guess, the time has come,
To write one for my chum.
If I had the time and money,
I would have showered you with gifts,
And not delivered these ‘wordly` lifts.
Remember, you have my wallet,
And I only have Rs fifty.
Your father, by the way, is also thrifty.
Had it not been for your father`s thrift,
I would have bought you a little gift,
I hope you get the drift.
If only I had a million,
You wouldn’t be riding pillion,
You would have got a Ferrari.
If only they had a market,
Where they sold a child,
I bet you would have smiled.
By the time you read this verse,
I would have man-handled your purse.
Thus, a Valentine`s Day gift is assured.
Rekha, I love you…
The poem is over. Phew!
Happy Valentine’s Day, dear wife!
