You're the Light


 Being in love with you makes every
morning worth getting up for
 I hover over your feedback
in an uncertain emotion
each time you give NO.
 Your name is now a sweet
I have been using it to answer questions
without a notice in an unexpected way
 
 Early in the morning your thought comes first
wishing I could ear your voice
 Along the street I walk blindly
because only your pic I see
which my eyes had been captured
 In amidst of people I stay hush
rest my cheek upon my palm
playing with you in phantom world
 
 At night sleep slip through me
because my mind is being
choked with a million thoughts only your pic I see
 Oh my beloved grant my request

 Let me a room to rest my limb
 Make me the wave upon your ocean
 The green leaves of your tree
 Make me the fish that dwells in your loving sea
Which your heart is it origin

 From the very moment we have met
my heart had been given to you
it has turned me into a drunkard
without a sip of an alcohol
 It draws my soul into another world
where I only see your pic
I smile to you from time to time
people think I'm insane,
but I know I'm in love and sane

 Make me the roof upon your house
and you be the dweller
 My love for you is like a sea, be the golden 
boat that function only upon my sea
 As I know you're the light
I'm longing for you my beloved, 
only the moon can light
the dark silhouette of the night.

This piece is very modern. At first I didn't like the modern terms but reading further I was drawn in. And your style became Shakespearean.

Good poem. But could use a little more chiselling.
