Love

Love

1.

I saw the bitter tears of unhappiness,
Running down your ravaged with pain
                                               Dear face
And I became a sponge of compassion
                                       To absorb them,

2.

I heard the howling of your starving
                                             Stomach,
Echoing throughout your rebellious 
                                         Drained veins,
And I became a sweet loaf of bread
                                            To feed you,

3.


I tasted the agonizing thirst of
                                     Your dry lips,
Burning fire! Consuming your
                                     Every single tissue,
And I became vivifying fresh water
                                      To quench it,

4.


I smelled the presence of sickness in your
                                          Tormented body,
Devouring your vibrant wellbeing, 
And I became salutary medicine to nurse you
                                                  Back to health,





5.
I felt the terror in your trembling gracious
                                                     Heart,
Scaring away your lofty humane
                                                   Virtues,
And I became fortifying courage to obliterate
                                            Your distressful fears,

6.

I found you lost in the darkness of joyless
                                                     Desperation,
Walking towards the abominable cliffs of
                                               Self- distraction,
And I became a bright ray of hope to guide you
                                               To self-realization,

7.                          

I discovered you shivering in the middle
                                             Of savage winter,
Wandering around without a roof over
                                            Your frozen head,
And I became a shelter of warmth to protect you
                                           From merciless cold, 

8.

I watched you suffering from excruciating
                                                             Solitude,
Feeling the ever depressing loneliness in
                                             Your tormented soul,
And I became your constant caring
                                              Companion,

9.

I noted the torture of merciless
                                           Rejection,
Destroying your wonderful, tender
                                            Feelings,
And I became your faithful
                                         Loved one,


10.

I observed you struggling in the rough sea
                                                           Of life,
Fighting your way over the ominous waves
                                         Of human malice,
And I became a solid boat of charity to bring you
                                              On the serene shore,

11.

I witnessed your efforts to climb the mountains
                                              Of desirable success,
Struggling, hopelessly, up the steep path
                                                       Of attainment, 
And I became a firm ladder of mercy to help you
                                                   Reach the very top,

12.

I remarked you fighting against your brutal
                                                           Enemies,
Trying to overcome their beastly power with your
                                                             Bare hands,
And I became a heavy sword of justice to make you
                                                                Victorious,

13.

I perceived the sharp arrow of relentless
                                                        Death,
Heading towards your loving, caring
                                                       Heart,
And I became a shield of concern to save
                                    Your precious life,

14.

You ask me why I do all these things
                                                   For you,
The answer is very simple my
                                            Friend:
It is because…
                              I LOVE YOU!
