I am neither moving nor stationary.
Yet, I see you everywhere, and see
all things in you. You are the brightness.
Neither the Sun nor the fire is brighter than you.
I bow to you, O light of my life.
I bow to you, O luster of my smiles.
Don’t restrain your love. Let it move.
I will be as stagnant as the paper boat
on the vortex of life, without you, my love.
Let me drink those naked verses
straight from the womb of your lips,
and feel evermore, the rapture of love
at the symposium of my heart with the soul.
There is a verse, hidden somewhere
in your smiles. I am trying to rhyme it
with the monologue of my tears.
Beloved! You aren’t only you.
You are the literature of my life.
