Your kind eyes…
Are like the sweet melody the morning birds twitter,
The warming breath of spring that thaws the icy winter.
Thou art the loving embrace motherhood gives her young,
The bright light that vivifies my day, oh radiant Sun.
Shooting Star of wishes carrying the hope of tomorrow,
Dazzling shafts of virtue that vanquishes all clouds of sorrow.
Delicious colors of rapture, I can taste the rainbow.
I feel your showers of affection…should I wear a raincoat?
The heart palpitates when I catch your glance,
Rhythm of love, music of joy, may I have this dance?
The intersection where grace and innocence meet,
The refuge of peace where the afflicted soul retreats.
Stars in the east that leads to the mountain of truth,
Wherein I discover and drink of the fountain of youth.
Now I am forever young with joy, giddy with a crush,
Soul ablaze with triumphant enthusiasm, cheeks an eternal blush.
You have bewitched me, have given my lips a song to sing,
You have given me flight, have bestowed my heart with wings.
Oh kind eyes!
Gentle caress of a handless touch, fairytale book of wonder,
Effervescing spring, refreshing breeze, babbling brook of summer.
