Love is like a many-coloured rainbow.
Many more shades, many more hues,
Than the sky could ever paint.
In one end of the spectrum is the love of self
The other end eyes never ever can reach.
Each shade, each tinge, each glint of light
Gleams for each that gave me their love.
But, my love, do not ask me how I glow for you.
And ask for whom else I do
And whether it shines brighter for you.
Do not, please, compare
Do not, please, ask if I love you more.
As the light of my love falls on your beautiful face
Drawing light into you like a prism
Instead of scattering, you converge
Me into a single beam of light
Of the stars
Of the moon
Of the sun
That shines forever and ever.
Then think no more of the myriad of colours
Just close your eyes and bask
In the sunshine of my love…
