‘Yes, I Love Her’

Yes, I love her, everything about her.

The truth about me, the truth about us;

Is what I treasure within me,

Deep down my soul.


Nerves like the strings of an antique violin;

Shiver inside me,

Each time she imprisons my thought.


Yes, I love her, everything about her.

The breathes of us, the waves of hers.

Each time the cloudy hazy skies

Wake up to a silver lining Just by her glance.


Yes, I love her, everything about her.

The melting frozen skin, the mystic stares of hers.

Uncertainly going towards the shadow

Which leads to an endless light glowing

To have her glimpse.


Yes, I love her, all of her.

Every bit of her, every inch of her.

Her alluring soothing voice rests my mind;

Soft like the dew on a dry parched leaf.


Yes, I love her.

Each time my name touches her lips;

Heaven seems to be a little more closer.
