I smiled

My love, early in the morning

When the first rays of the sun

Came across my silky pink curtains

To touch my cheeks,

I saw in them your face

Glowing with the colors of the rainbow.

I smiled.


I made some steaming tea in my cup

And sat down in my open terrace

Amidst the ferns and colorful orchids

And the wind arabesque

Whistled your name teasingly to me.

I smiled.


I looked at the sky,

The clouds winked at me, replete with joy

And the sang soft and intoxicating hymns,

All connected to you and your deeds

Of bravery and compassion,

While the bees and the butterflies

Hovered around, unraveling wonders

Of the charms of your soul

And the beauties of your heart.

I saw in them your eyes

Beaming with hues of love.

I smiled.


I went to relax in my bathtub

And millions of bubbles,

Appearing, disappearing and reappearing again

Touched my whole body,

Its valleys and its mounts,

Its streams and its crevices,

Making me soft as rose petals,

Again making me moan

With unspoken wishes

And in each bubble,

I saw your lips,

Shivering gently

With the fire of desire.

I smiled.
