ODE TO SHE (A love poem):

 

In this world of haste,

Where everything rushes at a pace,

I stop and see a pretty face -

There is always she.

 

When all around me seems a strife,

When pain cuts through me like a knife,

And I seem lost on the path of life -

There is always she.

 

And in the dark hours of the night,

When I with inner demons fight,

I awake again to see the sight

Of her smiling back at me.

 

When the noise outside is a clamour and gong,

And the days nought but labour long,

Then I hear her sing a simple song -

That we will always be.

 

Even in my darkest hour,

When I think that I have lost all power,

Her love descends like a shower

To enliven me.

 

And at dawn, when I arise,

I look upon those shining eyes.

My heart is glad when I realise -

There is always she.

 

I know that when this journey’s done,

A new adventure just begun,

Until we merge with the One -

We will always be.

 

And so, as I press ever on,

Even when my will is gone,

My heart is gladdened by her song -

There is always she.
