The Heavens Assent

Written by: Stefanus Nuno Pereira

A poet’s soul dwells in my 
heart
Composing the perfect rondeau 
for this forbidden love
From the profundity of his hurt
I can hear the refrain: “The 
Heavens assent.”
 
I HAVE found my 
cornerstone
This to me was unbeknown
For I have held her in my arms
Through my darkest nights of life
 
Many say she can’t be mine
‘Cause she is covered up with 
grime
But when polished she does 
shine
None shine brighter than her 
heart.
 
They fill my mind with worldly 
thoughts
To seek for silhouettes of a 
model
Ones you, forever, have to coddle
Blinds you from seeing her inner 
light
 
“A perfect wife who can 
find?
She’s far more precious than 
jewels”
Face and skin you shouldn't mind
Even cheap make up can cover.
Seek for the purest in 
heart
Since only God alters 
the heart of a lover.
 
So, dear poet, write your poem
Show her she’s my heart’s desire
My lover is mine, and I am 
hers
She will bear the kids I sire
Hurt no more, we are home
Cause she’s the one who trully 
cares.
 
I will hold her hand to forever 
after
Enjoy every breath and every 
laughter
Smile and feel the warmth of the 
sun
“The Heavens assent.”  She is the one...
