Enigmatic

When your relationship is full of exciting surprises and intriguing discoveries, it will never dull.

I.

Look up at the stars above
Such is your love.
So enigmatic,
Never static.

Look at the moon in the sky
And hear me sigh.
It’s so artistic,
Yet so mystic.

CHORUS:

I will not try
To figure you out.
I’m not a spy,
I’m not a scout.

I like it just
The way it is
My love and lust
Feed on your mysteries.

II.

Creating a new surprise,
You disguise.
It’s so magnetic
And poetic!

Just as your secrets impress,
Now I make you guess.
Is it ironic
Or harmonic?

CHORUS:

I will not try
To figure you out.
I’m not a spy,
I’m not a scout.

I like it just
The way it is
My love and lust
Feed on your mysteries.

My Sun

The sun shines on us all and gives life to everything. Every one of us should also have an internal sun – the source of everything positive – that beams within and without to inspire ourselves and everyone around.

A fortnight ago, the sun wasn’t mine.
Infused by the brine
Of mist from the ocean,
It wasn’t lethargic but offered no sign
Of tepid attention or lively devotion.

That sun was for those who suffer a bore,
For them who are left with no hope to explore,
For those with reasons to come to despair,
And those who have a mistake to deplore.

Nor was it for me when it shined last week.
Its tone was meek,
As it softened the air.
A cloud enframed its romantic mystique
And veiled the sun’s magisterial glare.

That sun was for those who try to conceal
Some intimate dreams and emotions they feel,
For those who whisper and those who flutter,
For them who are sweet on a dear ideal.

The sun of my world is the sun of today.
Its brightening ray
Will not spare a cloud.
With no hesitation it’s leading the way
Straight into the summer, vivacious and loud.

This sun is for those who share delight,
For those who smile and harbor no spite,
For them who insist on the positive mood,
And those who want their day to be bright.
