Expensive Lesson

It takes long to fall in love

These days

Love at first site

Is a phenomenon of distant past

It doesn’t happen anymore

Now it takes many years of just, 

Meeting, talking

Having endless cups of coffee

Doing things

Like lending books

And then going back 

To get them back

Going for movies

Letting her choose the seat

Being nice to her,

Her family, friends… dog

Wanting to know more and more about them all…

After you have known a lot about her

No, no don’t take it that way

That is not exactly

Knowing about her

How do you know if you really do love her

This question needs a true answer

But you may come to know how much you loved her… 

Only when you lose each other
