It's Only Words by Rekha Mittal Gupta

Although he didn’t wish me on my birthday, he delivered a bouquet of red roses and a heart-shaped ring after reaching the office

Although it’s our anniversary and I am sure he doesn’t remember, he remembers to call me daily reminding me to take my medicine 

Although he hurt me and didn’t apologize, he called to go on a dinner date

Although he never thanked me when I went out of the way to help him.

Although I confess a million times I LOVE YOU; he just smiles, feeling shy, and sleeps taking me in his arms

Dear wives

Your husbands too have been taught the magic words SORRY, THANK YOU, PLEASE, AND EXCUSE ME in their childhood but your husbands maybe those special beings who are not expressive of their emotions. But trust me, their actions speak louder than their words.

Wishing birthdays and anniversaries may not be their cup of tea, but they wish the best for you not just on special occasions, but always.

I LOVE YOU, they very well understand the significance of these three words but love is an emotion that they express through their compassion, care, concern, and bond.

So wifey’s, don’t bother if they don’t express themselves through words; their actions are the best confession of their emotions.

I Love You – my heart yearns for him to say

Explicit acknowledgment is overwhelming for him, will he, yea or nay

His mellifluous Elysian voice is music to my ears

However, drained he may be; to help me he always volunteers

Massages my knackered self and caresses me to sleep

Sucks the tears off my face, he can’t espy me weep

Watching me in distress, creases of anxiety furrow his forehead

He leaves no stone unturned to make my life a thornless rosebed

My ache agonizes him more, his eyes shed tears

He can’t reckon a life without me, losing me is his enormous fear

If this is not love, then what is, what should I construe?

His every act of compassion and concern speaks aloud I LOVE YOU…
