December 1992..I was preparing for the MBBS final exams.. It was such a hard time. 
My life was at a cross road.
The final MBBS part 2 only has 6 months to prepare after the part 1 Uni exams.
Medicine, Surgery, learn in 6 months.
The future was a big question mark..
Morning rounds, afternoon classes, practicals, evening rounds, in between find every second I could to study for the exams.
In between all these..there was loneliness..

Some times at night, I could hear boys leaving the hostel on their bikes..and I always looked outside..hoping it is you.. Yes, of course I know there is no way you could..but hope is such that, even when you know there is no still hope..hope doesn’t cost you a thing..Hopes and regrets are free (for me..)

And then there were tears..that too were free..
I still had the best of  Rod Stewart album you copied for me..I could sing over and over “I am sailing”..and “You are in my heart” was the only way I could cope..Music was my anchor companion..

Tonight, Rod Stewart sang both of my favourite songs..and I took you with me..

You’re in my heart, you’re in my soul
You’ll be my breath should I grow old
You are my lover, you’re my best friend
You’re in my soul

My love for you is immeasurable
My respect for you immense
You’re ageless, timeless, lace and fineness
You’re beauty and elegance

You’re a rhapsody, a comedy
You’re a symphony and a play
You’re every love song ever written
But honey what do you see in me
