At First Sight 

Perceived love at first sight,
Provide vigour and might,
Against every odds, path right,
Never out of goal keeping in sight,

Always memorable in life,
Dreaming to make her partner or wife,
Ready to sacrifice anything and show,
Always attracted towards beauty and glow,

Wants to build steady trust and grow,
Ready to swim with the water and flow,
Not to miss any chance and offer,
All wishes for happiness and self suffer,

All consequences frighten and create panic,
Even feet too crumble with melody or music,
Thoughts travel faster than light,
Count the stars at dead night,

At such an age awful experience,
Wedding of all watching at fence,
No more kidding but sincere efforts,
Attending all calls from ship at ports,

Waiting for response immediately to follow,
Oh! but courage and strength will not allow,
Always thinking of steps to show her but how?
Attempts to be made not late but now,

All hopes dashing with the news of engagement,
When see all preparations of marriage and movements,
With heavy heart no love to express,
Some weakness in part ready to redress
