I have promised myself not to love again,
the daughters of eve had inflicted serious pain,
True love and sincerity are scarce,yes! I know,
but these cold treatments make me feel so low,
Years went by,I refused to fall in love,
hoping that one day a true angel will come from above,
that will wipe my tears in the sea of passion,
and stop this lingering mockery and allusion,
You appeared in my sky with intense rays of light
which make my flowers rise and blossom so bright,
Cold spring water flows over cave without hindrance,
as beasts of the forest and birds watch this bee-dance,
Whispering in the night brought great succor to my heart;
The rising of the full moon and season come to a start,
You are my diamond;greatly refined and invaluable,
to treat you like a star; I hope I will be much able.
Dedicated to all my poetrysoup friends...You are my stars.
