~*A Journey Embossed In Platinum!*~

"Gorgeous"
"Beautiful"
"Resplendent"
"Splendid"
"Pretty"
"Stunning"
"Exquisite"
"Glorious"

It was customary of me to hear such words of praise and appreciation from common folk admiring my beauty.

It was customary of them to utter such words of praise, not holding back their impetuosity.

I had grown weary of acknowledging such praises each moment of every passing day...

"Tell Me Something New!" - I used to wonder at times...

I always longed for a companion, with a spark which could match my beauty, complement me, complete me in ways more than one, gift me precious memories and more than one 'Platinum Day Of Love'.

I always longed for that 'Karmic Connection' to establish itself between my beloved and me!

Ah! My expectations from Destiny have never failed me till date!

~~~

And So, The D - Day...
And The Spark Of My Life...
Arrived...

Leaving Me Awe - Struck...
Fantasizing...
Of 'Together Days' Ahead...

And To My Surprise!
Mutual Feelings Kindled...
The Sparks Of Love...

Music To My Ears...
Dreams To My Mind...
Someone Pinch Me...
~~~

Fast Forward In Time...
To That Destined Moment...
To The Auspiciousness...

HIM & HER...
TOGETHER!!!

He & Me...
Adorning...
His & Her...
Hands!


~~~

O My Beloved! Let us travel back in time...
To the Good 'Ol Days...
When We First Met...

Spending innumerable days & nights in a showroom's - 'all lights on me' display case, I had grown weary of awaiting that 'Someone Special's' special shine.



The wait grew longer and longer until...

One Fine Day...
You stepped into My Life (or should I say My Display Case? ^_^)

I cherished those short - lived moments of my closeness to you.
Why short - lived, you say?

~~~

Don't you remember that fateful day?
The One when we were split apart?
The One when I lost you?

The One when I found you... Again? ^_^

The One When He Took Me...
And She Took You?

Cursing Them For This Big Sin Of Theirs!
It Sure Did Seem A Sin Back Then!

Little Did We Know...
Being Separated To Meet...

And Make Love Birds Meet As Well...
Was Our Task For That Day!

Yes, you got that right, Dear...

With them in their finest robes...
We were not far behind...

Seated In Our Plush Velvet-y Cases...
WE, The Platinum Bands!!
Were the harbinger of Marriage, That Day - 13 April 1994...


~~~

Remember Another Day Of Love...
When They Fell In Love Again?

Separation In Testing Times...
And It Came As A Shock!

Those Fateful Plane Crashes...
Both On The Same Day!


With He On A Business Trip...
And She At Her Friend's New - Home Visit Across Seas...

They Had That Karmic Connection...
US - The Platinum - The Love...
Binding Them For Eternity!

Much More Than Destiny...
Eternal Love...
He & She Escaped Unhurt!

Love Strengthened Their Bond...
The Platinum - US!
As Each Other's Testimony...

~~~

One - That Day...
And One - This Day - 13 April 2044!

With Their Platinum Jubilee...
Just Quarter A Century Away!

Never Have They Parted...
And Never Have We Parted Too!

Sharing Countless Joys & Sorrows...
Sad & Happy Tomorrows!

~~~

Numerous Ups & Downs...
Have We Not Bravely Fared Through?

Passing The Ring Of Fire...
With Equal Poise & Grace!

Fifty Years Of Togetherness At 78 Years Of Age...
Is Not A Play, A Game!

It Takes A Lot Of Love...
And Trust & Faith...
Platinum Too!

~~~

Timeless Is This Essence...
The One Of Eternal Love!

Priceless Is This Emotion...
The One Of Eternal Love!

Momentous Is This Occasion...
Of Realizing One's Eternal Love!

~~~

Such An Eternal Realization...
That Of Immortal Love!

Demands A Pure Expression...
That Of Perpetual Love!

Platinum Meets That Expectation...
That Of Unceasing Love!

~~~

Purity At Its Helm...
Such Is Immaculate Love!

Rarity At Its Helm...
Such Is Extraordinary Love!

Treasures At Its Helm...
Such Is Cherished Love!

~~~

So, This Is How WE - The Platinum Bands - Fared With Him & Her In This Blissful Journey Of Love, Separation, Reunion & Togetherness!
Hope To Continue...
So Far So Good!
Till Death Does Them Part...
And Us Too!!
