Looking back with a sense of pride
Such a long years of forty plus
In which you’ve very dearly created many pluses
With thy wisdom at every step
Thou held my hand
Whence I was wide off the mark
We had a life of immense fulfillment together
Brought up our children with immense care
With whatever I could muster
With the earnings which I could with utmost earnestness
Thy imparting value system to the offspring is enormous
As I used to be away from home
Due to my posting outstations
As a demand of organization
I worked with
You did not let my absence impact
The running of household and kept it in tact
With your deft
Handling of home affairs
If I say thee had been a the best life-partner
There is no exaggeration at all
I only knew how to earn
And not knowing what and how to spend best
A penny-wise indeed
It is well said
That it is luck to get a good partner in life
If it is my spouse like
The life becomes a SEVENTH HEAVEN
On this beautiful earth
I pray to Almighty God
For letting me Kamal as my partner
Till we get Moksha
Due to our Karmic deeds indeed.

      1. That is a very good news. Wish that I could meet you – commitments; I have to go to my home town JAMMU and would be back to Delhi after 15th November 2019.



      2. Maybe some day we can meet, dear friend – when I come back from the north of India (about 360 northwards from Dehli) then our group is going directly to the airport, night time.

        Wishing you a great time in your home town Jammu, dear Habans 🙂
        Warm regards

  1. Congratulations on your landmark anniversary! As a woman married happilyvforbover 57 years now, i can with authority say, “The Best is Yet to Come.” Retirement years together with your life-long soulmate are surely years of heaven on earth. Enjoy them fully! Thank you, btw, for joining our JanBeek path to “Loving One Another” in gratitude and kindness. God bless you!

    1. P.S. See those B’s added to happily forever up there? That’s my fingernail catching the “b” on my little iPhone keyboard! 😩 Where’s spellcheck when you need it?

      1. Bless you for that wonderfully affirmative response. I am so glad the post resonated with you. Do you have great-grandchildren yet?

      2. Yes madam; one grandson from my son and daughter-in-law and two (Son and daughter) from my daughters side. Really, we both enjoy the togetherness of all. A fulfilling life indeed for both of us.


      3. Like you, we have a boy and girl, too. Our son & daughter-in-law in CA adopted 2boys and 2girls. The 3 great-grandchildren come from their oldest daughter and youngest son. Our daughter in Switzerland has 3 grown sons. None of them are married yet – but one has a very significant other. Life is wonderful when we can stay connected in love in spite of our physical distance, isn’t it?

      4. Yes ma’am. My son and daughter-in-law along with my grandson are in UK; two months back I along with my wife visited them and hugely enjoyed enjoyed the togetherness. Here at Delhi too, we really enjoy with my daughters’; their son and daughter. Such is the grace of our LORD.


    2. I am really impressed by your commentary.

      Affirmative; such a long years of togetherness of 42 years in which we had our ups and downs yet we weathered all storms together.

      Those who live together in thick and thin, with the grace of Almighty God do earn for themselves satiety and God connectivity.

      Warm regards


  2. Good morning and thanks for this moving acknowledgement of Ms. Kamal, you dear life companion. Amongst your many karmic deeds, none compares to the wise decision of choosing this gifted yet unassuming girl as your loyal wife and mother of your children. May God Almighty grant you both plenty of more happy and fruitful years in her lovely company. A big hug. Arrivederci.

    1. Good Morning Dr. Sahib.

      I thank you so very much for appraising the poem and giving your inspiring commentary.

      Those who respect others, themselves,, respect their own life partners.

      Your wishes are obviously praiseworthy indeed.



      1. Good morning and welcome my dear friend. I sense that you are a little at odds with my page because I haven’t seen a commentary in days. Moreover my birthday was on November 5th and I was expecting a congratulatory note in the picture with my son that I had posted. C’est la vie,

      2. Good Morning Dr. Sahib.

        Wishing you HAPPY BIRTHDAY (5th November) though belated yet all the same wishes could serve the purpose anytime anywhere. i shall visit the blog and see for myself the photos etc.

        I had gone to my home town Jammu, I was too busy there; especially on 12th Nov. since it was 550th birth anniversary of Guru Nanak Dev Ji.

        I shall visit your blog and add to my know-how.
