A Diamond in Flesh and Blood
All the mansions look pale
before the one your soul resides in.
Perhaps, all the beauty of the world
has condensed into one being, named …
Need I mention your name?
To me, it’s synonym of God!
Yet no name is sweet enough
to represent the beauty you are!
Language has yet to coin a word
to express the myriad aspects
of your exquisite charms.
All the brightness of the Full Moon,
concentrated through some lens,
would be shy of your glow.
‘Heaven on Earth’, who is your pivot,
whose reflection you are?
May I call you my own Moon, my own Soul?
But Ah! I’m nothing except a little star,
dimmed by your radiance, and very far.
It must have taken God a millennium
to create a being like you —
A pure diamond in flesh and blood!
Would that with my sufficient worth,
I had diamonds enough to weigh you with!
