After Lasting Darkness
Shone and glowed after lasting darkness,
From you, my life, I saw its sun and moon.
By broken tracks and teeming hordes,
In the blazing sun of deserts, fierce their heat.
You were the beginning and became the end,
Quit the sweetness and bitterness of life before you.
The hour of yearning passed between war and peace,
Slayed me your eyes, oh how artful.
Appeared your face to guide through deserts of love,
A glance released from shackles my soul.
So many conflicts, then resolution, after which...conflict,
In the course of nights, its good and bad.
From your features my eyes bear no fast,
In the grace of beauty, how sweet to break fast.
Who engaged always my thoughts, yet slept unfeeling of my needs,
I wish through my eyes saw, who engaged them.
