The day I struck the Jackpot was

When I met you

Like a bar of chocolate

In a glass of milk

Or an overflow of cream

Like a casket of gold and diamonds

In my hands

Like sweet wine

Of the latest brand and finest brew

Like the perfume perfuse

Of celestial incense

Like an exotic spice

Of a flavor and aroma

Like a castle in the woods

Fully furnished and furbished

Like a princess and queen

In a wedding dress and bouquet

It's what you're to me

And even more

For you're my everything

What water is to vibrant green

Air to living being

Land to intelligent life

And heaven to saint

What colostrum is to neonate

Oxygen to asphyxiant

Erythrocytes to anaemic

And life to the soul

You're the wellspring

Of my life

My reason for breathing

The cohesive element

That binds to together

All the broken pieces

In the jigsaw puzzle of my life

It's something sweet

Like a leaf

That falls by gravity to earth

And returns no more

So did I fall for you


Dear Eve

I love you with all

My genome

Spiritual and physical
