A Boon

I raised my hands in prayer

I was sure of what I wanted

From the moment I looked at you

Your name only I chanted


I didn’t tell God about you

I said I wanted Moon

With a twinkle in His eyes

He gave me ‘you’ as a boon


This gift is yet incomplete

You are still so far away

I often dream of the moment

When you’ll be mine one day


I want you to come to me

And live with me forever

Yearn to hold you in my arms

See our dreams together


You are the gift I received from God

You are my prize possession

Throughout my entire life

You would be my love- my obsession
