Do you believe in “love at first sight”?
let us have a trip down the memory lane and recall the first time when we fell in love with someone– the magic of that first look; that very microsecond when you saw him (her) for the first time; that mystical moment when you knew that yes, he (she) is the one for you; you knew before you’d taken the next breath that he (she) was the one you could spend the rest of your life looking for but never find again!
Falling in love for the first time is a very fresh and an immature experience. In the first season of love, the magical flow of every moment takes us into an altogether different path. With this new episode, tremendous feelings; varied emotions crop up- a hormonal rush creates such a dream world that we don’t even mind getting ourselves drowned into the sea of complications. When in love- just one call; a single good night wishes; long hour conversations or even a mere silence between the love birds is enchanting enough to make it the most memorable phase of life. The splendor is magnified if it’s a first affair..! A sudden spurt of change is seen- both inside and outside us- when in love for the first time!
“I remember that first love…
The warmth of the moment when you hugged me; The charm of the second when you smiled at me; The innocence of the time when you held my hand; The brightness of the sun when we walked over the sand!
The blues of the waters who witnessed our journey; The greens of the gardens who cheered with us happily; The width of the road that narrowed when we walked together; The length of the path that elongated when we got lost in each other!
I remember that first love…
The dreams so beautiful; the moments so wonderful; The happiness of the world around; the excitement that took me upside-down; The disappointment of not seeing you; the frustration of missing you!
I remember that first love…
The depth of the trust you had on me; the strength of expectations you had from me; the everlasting moment of togetherness; the ecstasy of our liveliness!
I very well remember that first love…!”
But not everyone is lucky enough to marry their first love (I have used the word marriage because according to me marriage is the only logical step to carry forward a significant relationship to the next level). Even then the first experience is worth cherishing. The first time you fall in love, it changes your life forever, and no matter how hard you try, whatever you do, the feeling never goes away. It stays with you forever!
In the unfortunate cases, there can never be any regrets with the first love, but only lessons! I can recollect when I fell in love for the first time (but this realization came in very late). Though I couldn’t get him, but trust me, I have got no hard feelings for him or God, for not making him my destiny. I learnt a lot in the process and can never ever forget the best of those moments which I shared with him! We don’t have any right to blame our fate, or God or anyone else for not getting our first love (just peep inside your heart and ask yourself- I’m sure you’ll find something which you had learnt from your first experience for which you must be grateful today).
Now the issue is ‘what next’?
After having lost our first love, how can we move on? Aah… Leave that to God- somewhere, someone is being wrapped for us! And the depression of having lost our love will surpass as soon as we’ll meet the final one!!(*wink*)
