Letters to Tomorrow ~ Today, Ten Years Ago

Dear Tomorrow,

Today's letter is a story of a few years ago.

Once upon a time, ten years ago, a boy waited eagerly for a girl to come by.
They had planned the visit to be their last goodbye, but little did they know,
Their lives were about to change in big ways, and here's why.

He had told her he loved her.
She had told him it couldn't be.
India and the United States were separated by ocean and sea. 

So this was their first meeting.
To say goodbye they met.
Although it would be fleeting, it would be one they'd never forget.

He sat there on his purple suitcase.
She walked with her sister in tow.
All the nervousness hidden behind their face, no one will ever know.

She was a little late, he got a little worried.
He said she was worth the wait.
She told him she had hurried. 

They hugged each other. 
For the first time putting feeling to voice.
If they could've they would've lived closer, but that wasn't a choice.

It was a whirlwind of a few days. 
Each day changing lives forever.
They were lost trance-like in a daze, when this girl from Delhi met this boy from Denver.

A decade may not seem a lot to some.
But to their growing story it is monumental.
It took a lot of bravery from them to overcome distances that were intercontinental. 

This is one of many stories you will know.
One of many told yet.
It was today, ten years ago, that Dan and Suparna met. 

Ten years of learning more and rising in love.
Ten years of caring for and building a life we're proud of. 

Ten years ago. Today.
I can't wait to see what Tomorrow will bring, Dan. I can't wait to see what the next ten years will bring.

Lovingly,
-Suparna
