For a dear friend….

One of my close friends from my engg days is getting married soon. I wrote this for her. It is kind of sappy and cheesy, on the lines of ‘Banno ro banno meri, chali sasural ko……’ Aaaah, well…..

I remember the first day in 2005,
When I** walked into the dorm,
From the crazy gal to a to-be-newly-wed
We have seen you beautifully transform.

The hippie kurtas and baggy jeans,
With a curly crop on your head,
To silk and chiffon drapes,
And the brushed, smoothed hair instead.

As you start a new life ahead,
So many good wishes for the mad bride.
Hoping you both settle in domestic bliss,
With lots of love, care, and for each other, pride.

With nothing else to give,
But tons of hugs and kisses,
Wishing you loads of luck,
As you turn into a Mrs.
