You are like the brilliant sun
rise at dawn,
Your immaculate beauty inspires
my poetry.
You smile like the full moon
in the pristine
beauty of the night
Your sacred eyes are my
mesmerizing delight.
Sit like a queen in your
elegance and grace,
Your hair is like a flowing
stream cascading
down a mountain
And now you are like
the beauty of the
rainbow fading away
from me in the placid
afternoon as the sun
sets over a blue mountain.
