Doubts and fears

Love isn’t easy

When distance separates us.

The fragrance of your pure self

Haunts my dreams

Every night and every morn.


Plunged in he pool of silence,

I look at the vast sky,

I hear the faint singing

And murmuring of the constellations.


Doubts and fears creep to my hear,

I feel weak and helpless,

Lost in the tangle of vine.

Biter sweet nostalgia

Makes my head go round and round,

And my existence seems meaningless.


But then all of a sudden,

The jewel print of your feet

Touches my heart gently and softly

And the fire of flame burns

With a moderate lilacĀ  flame.


I feel the warmth of your smile,

The love in your voice

And the comfort of your arms.

I see the Madonna lilies gleaming

In the pearl crystal clear pool.

I hear the musical sway

Of the white paddling swans.


I then realize that my fears and doubts

Were simply unfounded

And eternity is too short

To love you.
