The stars in the sky

cluster around you,

seeking guidance.

They ask you,

‘Kind Sir,

How do you shine

so bright?

How do we replicate

The lovely


that radiates

your essence

from your brown eyes?’

Just like the tongue

delights in sugar,

you are eager

to please others.

Like power restored

after a lengthy

power cut,

you light me up,

you linger in my thoughts.

‘Where are you going with this?’

you ask, smiling.

I am going nowhere.

I am here with you,

lacking nothing.
