Right from the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it.

Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face
that I was looking for.

Today I have found you
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking as keenly
as I did.

I am bewildered by the purity
of your beauty
and wish to see you
with a hundred eyes.

My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wonderful beauty
that I now behold.

I am ashamed
to call this love human lust
and yet afraid of God
to call it divine.

Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of my garden.

You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow.

My soul is screaming in ecstasy
Every fibre of my being
is in love with you.

Your brilliant smile
has lit a fire in my heart
for me
the earth and sky.

My arrow of love
has finally hit the target
I am now in the house of love
and my heart
is a place of rapture.
