“The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face”
It was as if it was their very first kiss…….
as Gopi blushed on Ahem as he helped to fully dress her
before taking her home from the hospital.
She sat there all dewy-eyed as Ahem so painstakingly worked every detail.
He applied red polish to her toes and fingernails,
put lipstick on her lips,
slowly styled and combed her hair,
putting pretty flowers in her hair too.
Next earrings in each ear lobe
and the mangalsutra around her neck,
bindi on her forehead
and then held up a mirror before her
so she could approve of a job well done by him.
Lastly, he put bright red vermillion
onto the part of her hair
just as he did on their wedding day
and once again he made her a promise
he would never leave her…
not under any circumstances.
They held each other closely, now that’s love!
