My Beautiful Escape

Written by: Ahmed Rashwan

The image of your face in my memory resides, 
and now after all you are by my side.

Every night I stare at the moon, 
hoping I will meet you soon.

Loving you makes me see things better, 
now I see beauty in words and letters.

Your silky smooth skin is so soft, 
a piece of heaven, you were cut off.

Your eyes more beautiful than a rainbow, 
shinning a new color everywhere they go.

Your eyelashes that beat so magically 
hold together the secret to your mystery.

Your nose structured like a work of art, 
forever you will rest in my heart.

Your lips so irresistibly sweet 
a passionate kiss when our lips meet.

Your teeth arrange to form a perfect smile 
that brings me happiness all the time.

Your hair like rivers and waterfalls flow, 
it is behind the reason why I love you so.

The curves of your body are irresistible; 
it makes my heart so weak and vulnerable.

Your voice that is safe keeps me calm, 
and your arms around me will keep me warm.

It’s very beautiful how our souls perfectly fit, 
and how your beauty in the darkness lit.

My only wish is for you to be, 
forever and ever here beside me.

And no matter what sad thoughts put a frown on my face, 
you were, you are, and you always will be…my beautiful escape
