Ode to you

Ode to you.

You are in my heart, you are in my soul, you are the light in my eyes and you are music in my mind. Time stands still to peek at you and the sun burns deep inside your love. Moon weeps to come back to you and the stars shine in hopes of meeting you. Flowers bloom to make you laugh and trees twirl to appease you. Songbirds sing for your ears and peacocks spread magnificent plumes in your honor. Poets write poems and bands make melodies to make you dance. Love is your aura and life is your essence. Earth is a beautiful planet but your presence adds to its ambiance. Beauty sits in your feet and patience is your posture. Wisdom is your grace and intelligence is your smile. Hearts throb for your looks and minds crave your perfume. Eyes glitter with your sight while souls soothe.

It is you who is one of the cutest among creations and reflection of the creator's best mood. Colors spring through your cheeks and illuminate dawns from your forehead. Language is insufficient to praise you and vocabulary falls short for your admiration.

I was a fallen feather in a desert of fear and lust, driven by the air of greed and gloom, you appeared in my life to wind me up to fly again. Nothing could pull me away from the crowd of fools but an encounter of your graceful eyes. I haven’t been able to look beyond ever since I have seen your charm. Who wants to meet anyone else and who wishes to watch something more. What a wonderful look it was that we exchanged. I look no further. You fulfill my heart and complete my love. I love you.

Looking for Your Face

From the beginning of my life

I have been looking for your face

but today I have seen it

Today I have seen

the charm, the beauty,

the unfathomable grace

of the face

that I was looking for

Today I have found you

and those who laughed

and scorned me yesterday

are sorry that they were not looking

as I did

I am bewildered by the magnificence

of your beauty

and wish to see you

with a hundred eyes

My heart has burned with passion

and has searched forever

for this wondrous beauty

that I now behold

I am ashamed

to call this love human

and afraid of God

to call it divine

Your fragrant breath

like the morning breeze

has come to the stillness of the garden

You have breathed new life into me

I have become your sunshine

and also your shadow

My soul is screaming in ecstasy

Every fiber of my being

is in love with you

Your effulgence

has lit a fire in my heart

and you have made radiant

for me

the earth and sky

My arrow of love

has arrived at the target

I am in the house of mercy

and my heart

is a place of prayer
