Your Love

This was a poem I wrote for my wife Neesha as we celebrated Valentines Day (2008) in a hospital ward following the birth of my elder daughter Tara. I’d taken a week of paternity leave and since I couldn’t find a card shop nearby, I wrote this poem on a piece of paper.

With your love I’m born anew,
In your love I will continue.

To your love I’m indebted first,
For your love, my only thirst.

From your love my strength extends,
On your love my life depends.
