‘Her’ story

"And I ask just one thing from you,"

Said Mumtaz Mahal in a voice

So comely and with a gaze true,

"So that you are never of me devoid,

Build me a marvel where I may reside,

Once I leave the mortal realm behind,

And let it be but an emblem of

Pure love, sans barriers and divide,

And let it be but a symbol of

Two hearts which shall forever be aligned."

"Oh, my dearest Mumtaz! Why is it that

You utter the words I wish you never had.

Why do you speak of parting ways,

When I am but prepared to set ablaze,

This wonted universe for your fine fettle?"

Then, with a heart heavy began the making of something special.
