The domain in your heart

I hold in low esteem the riches of this world

For I came not to seek for wealth,

I came to seek for love.


I  have always been too fragile

To confront this temporal world,

Void and empty, neither bright nor vivacious.

I often felt lonely,orphaned and abandoned

Having no one to rely on

For  soul sustenance and heart consolation

And most importantly love.


My culture unsophisticated,

My outside unpretentious,

Hiding not behind the mask of cosmetics

And my inside in-artificial, hiding a secret,

Though not attaching too much significance

To the rough path of mundane existence.


I have never felt any anger,

Like pulsating lava cascading

Or looked at the weary wars

With a sardonic sense.

Ethereal soul, wandering like a Summer breeze,

Watching at the same old world

Spinning on and on,

I waited for love.


I waited for that love,

Which like the sea would stretch beautifully

Into eternity.

I believe in the seductive power of love

And its original vision,

Where faith doubts not

And hope despairs not.


And when I met you,

My pulse began to throb.

I knew you are the sun

That would bring light to my days.


You are not an object to be possessed

And yet, there is a domain in your heart

Which I can claim to be mine.

There, where there is eternal peace,

I reside

While the fragrance of the hyacinth

Blends perfectly with the jasmine.
