A true Relation

“Waves on the Sands of Time”

The richness of togetherness
Often is in the casualness
And the assuredness
In the seperateness

There is not much of day-to-day missing
More of the genuine caring and sharing
Relation sometimes easily taken granted
But never in the least slanted
Utmost trust and respect
Not a you-versus-me prospect

The differences are the strength
Work em out or let them be
The samenesses are the faith
On which you operate as WE

There is no as such fairy tale
There’s some laughs and some wail
It’s justΒ how you help fly and sail
Look at the other soar withΒ pride
While keeping pride itself aside

Each is a person evolving sole
Infinite being exclusively
It takes the finest of soul
To watch you on your own be whole
Yet be a partner unconditionally

Do I need an occasion or apprehension
To celebrate this true relation?
The heart spoke to me auspicious today
With such feeling and emotion …


Recently my husband & I celebrated our 20th Anniversary, 20 years of creating waves on the sands of time πŸ™‚ The above poem, originally published on Aug 30, 2016, was a raw feeling then and now feels truer than ever. It only felt natural to share it again now, and also it was read by fewer WP friends back then.

  1. As I was reading this I found it true of any reciprocal relationship. Moving onward, helping, guiding, yet letting one another be their own unique soul.

    It’s nice that you have this kind of relationship with your husband. It is healthy and a place in which both of you can grow. In relationships, differences often support one another. Enlightenment is often within the process of seeing a different perspective.

    I like how you weave these thoughts in and out of the piece.

    • Yes, it is true of any reciprocal relationship. Marriage is one formality given by society. I am blessed and grateful to get to create it the way it feels most truthful.
      ‘In relationships, differences often support one another. Enlightenment is often within the process of seeing a different perspective.’ – This is such profoundness what you say, it is so true, it humbles me.
      It is such happiness the way you interpret my poem, thank you very much!

  3. Pragalbha, you are so wise. I get something out of every single one of your poems. I feel like you have a beautiful way of pulling back the veil of our common understanding of things and allowing us to gaze into the core of reality. And you help us see the beauty in it. Thank you, Friend. And happy anniversary!
