Larger than life…

a poem by Madhura Dabholkar

What is it…
that gives a mesmerizing
touch to my heart
when you say those three words.

What is it…
which gives me a feeling
like in heaven
when you hold me in your strong arms.

What is it…
that makes my heartbeat
rise up and up
when I wait for us to meet.

What is it…
when I feel terrible inside
for not having your sight.

What is it…
when I crave badly
for that special touch.

What is it…
when I feel the
larger than life intimacy
when our souls become one.

Is it you my sweetheart
or is it your love…
I think its a perfect blend
of you, your love
and me a part of it.
