You are the rainbow of my life

I was supposed to make a post about my guardian angel. Hence, I tried surfing the web for blogs on angels. In the process, I was fascinated by a poem for Angela wherein I can relate myself. With the author’s permission, who doesn’t want me to link this post to his blog, I repost the poem. Article on My Guardian Angel will have to wait. Yes, ’twill follow next.

Like a rainbow
you come, after the storm
you accept me just as I am
you let the sun shine through
I am no longer the same.

Like a rainbow.
I wish the luster would stay forever
inevitably, at times, it disappears
But I don’t have fear
I know its presence is still there
to appear again after another storm
thereafter.

Like a rainbow
our relationship looks like a compromise
between the storm and sunlight
my life’s clouded with rainstorm
yours is brilliant as daylight.

Like a rainbow
Our love will glow
to prove the paradox of life,
how contradictory forces harmonize
to show the beauty in life,
when unlike poles unite.

So near yet so far

This  is the title of the song written by  Cole Porter, for the 1941 film You’ll Never Get Rich.  ‘Twas a  Hollywood musical comedy film with a wartime theme. The plot is sort of comedy of romance. Here’s the lyric:

My dear, I’ve a feeling you are 
So near and yet so far
You appear like a radiant star
First so near then again so far

I just start getting you keen
On clinches galore with me
When fate steps in on the scene
And mops up the floor with me
No wonder I’m a bit under par
For you’re so near and yet so far

My condition is only so-so
‘Cause whenever I feel you’re close, oh
You turn out to be, oh, so far

I can relate to the song as I think of our relationship. Just when I thought you were closer to me, you tried to keep your distance. Like a lovely bird, you charmed me with your tweets. Yet left me alone when I was about  to move closer to you.

But isn’t this one trait  I like  in you? Your puzzling mysterious ways  attract me the more and/or, maybe, no end, at all. Keep it up!

Just an interlude

One thing I am happy about  when  I reflect on our relationship is the fact that I cannot recall any instance when I lied to you. I might have exaggerated  some truths. I  might have overstepped the bounds, pushed myself beyond the limits. There were times when I might have become insensitive to the extent of hurting or offending you and got your ire. Still I remain honest with  my feelings  towards you. I have been  consistently true to you and to myself in expressing my feelings. Would you not congratulate me?
