How do you describe amazement?
I will attempt in utter vain… for I am
a poet of elegance, but yet unable to
speak such beauty I saw that day…
How do you describe amazement?

This is my attempt…

Dreams… floating in memory…

I wish to seep behind her eyes, to know
the thought which is created from love,
love which God must have had to create
the essence of you

A soft blue, eyes twinkling like
dots of power which light the sky…
How else do I describe amazement at
the thought of you

At the thought of your touch
At the thought of your breath,
seeping into mine?

I can't find the perfect word,
the word which means more beautiful
than hope, more beautiful than faith,
for when I see you… my heart can't
wait

It flies in merry circles,
beating wings with power,
at the mention of your name

Is this but a game?
A game in which beauty is prized?
For you are the highest prize.
The gift which is more precious than stone
My heart begged to be alone.

In vain I silenced the moan.
The desire to have love, to be love
Then I saw you that day.

Blue eyes gleaming, hair shining,
I tripped at the sight of you,
I tripped into love.

As I fell, the feeling of comfort
washed my senses, tore my pain,
and cleansed my heart

As if I was granted another start,
Another attempt at finding peace,
the ultimate joy,
The pleasure of eternal love.
