She was destined to be knowledgeable and wise.
T’was kindled by her inquisitive fire as a girl.
She grew and matured into an exemplary woman;
One who could confront all that life would hurl at her.
In due course of her career she met a wonderful man,
A person who was equally admirable and great.
A marriage of grandeur soon followed their chance meeting;
She gracefully lived through this play of her good fate.
Happiness and peace endured between the two
Until a notice of her transfer reached their door.
Unable to reject, she packed only half her belongings
For they would be together again in three years or four.
Her time away was painful for both her and him.
They were still true to each other and she remained strong.
She chose to smile though her time in this temporary home
And with that by her side, what could go wrong?
Her kind, gentle interactions with fellow colleagues
Portrayed the strength she had in her heart;
Despite the distance that separated the soul-mates
She knew nothing could cause them to part.
Four years passed and she didn’t change at all
Her return home spelled joy for the two.
The man she loved was elated to have her back;
Over the years his love for her only grew.
Yet somehow the same man questioned her;
He doubted the fidelity she showed.
He thought- “She has been away for four years.
Anything could have happened there, who knows?”
What followed brought her nothing short of agony;
He expressed his concern in completeness.
His words pierced her like the prick of a needle,
She thought- “How could this turbulence follow such happiness?”
Such doubts did not abide by the purity of her heart.
Solace was no longer something she would find here.
“I am going to my mother’s. Don’t expect me back.”
She said, “Goodbye and farewell, my dear.”
His love had left. He grieved endlessly.
Loneliness was his companion from then.
He never stopped loving her and one day his soul left his body
And reunited with it’s better half in heaven.

I felt as if I was reading an interpretation of Ramayana after the war episode.
It was good
