A Tribute..To A Perfect Person

I wanna make you smile
Whenever you're sad
Carry you around when your arthritis is bad
All i wanna do, is grow old with you

I'll get you medicine when your tummy aches
Build you a fire if the furnace breaks
So, it could be so nice growing old with you,....

I'll miss you
Kiss you
Give you my coat when you are cold
Need you
Feed you
Even let you hold the remote control.

So let me do the dishes in our kitchen sink
Put you to bed when you've had too much to drink
Oh I could be the man that grows old with you
I wanna grow old with you.

It has been 6 years since I have been with Soubhagya (my Pati) and I have to say that it has been more than worthwhile. It is not the first time that he is away, but somehow, more than the missing (which I do terrribly), it is the Gratitude and the Importance of him in my life, I feel. That is what has compelled me into writing this post. Listening to 'The Reason' I sit right here to pay a tribute to my perfect man.
I am not very good with 'saying' it but I need to say this, You are The Reason for my sanity, my existance, my belief, my life! So here are a few things that I want you to know.
  • I truly thank God for bringing you into my life.
  • I find a Reason for success, a Reason for living, a Reason to smile, a Reason to talk when I am with you.
  • I know there are times when I give you a very very hard time.. but thats just coz I want to demand attention.
  • I think you are the most amazing, top-class, perfect, adorable husband ever.
  • I have never met a man who can be a Child and a Grown-up at the same time.
  • I love the way you dance and sing in the mornings. My mornings are never the same without your loud Bollywood singing and your impromptu dancing around the dining table.
  • I love the way you make me breakfast. The only reason I look forward to mornings is to get that cold coffee and that breakfast.
  • I adore your strength and your will to succeed. I admire your courage and your focussed attitude towards life.
  • I admire your finicky attitude towards things, I love the fact that you are so careful about everything and you know the importance of things we have acquired/bought/got.
  • I love they way you are with my family. Its like you are their long-lost son! They are very proud to have you.
  • I am very proud of you. I remember the times you were unsure about your life, your career and what you wanted/needed to do. But look at today - you are a successful smart man and I am so proud of you and your achievements and I know that you have paid your dues, now it is your time and you will succeed. I know it.
  • I miss your chitter chatter when I am in the other room, the way you keep calling out my name. I get irritated then, but I miss it now.
  • I love your sense of humour. It is, I believe, the best sense of humour I have come across in a man. You keep me in splits and that is one thing I adore about you.
  • Anyone who meets you/knows you, loves you and gets pulled towards you. You have this amazing magnetic attitude that draws people towards you. Noone can hate you.
  • I like the fact that you can make anyone feel comfortable around you. From the maid, to the milkman, to the landlord, to the watchman, to the local provision store guy, to your colleagues, to my friends, to our families - you have them all floored!
  • You are very sensible and very down to earth and that is the quality that draws me towards you.
There are probably a 1000 more things I wanna say to you, guess it is difficult to remember each and every thing at one go. But I do wanna say one thing --
I Do Wanna Grow Old With You. Coz I dont see myself with anyone else 50 years from now....
