Sweet As You Are…

Sweet As You Are... short poem

The falling rains, the blowing wind

The call of mountains,

The songs of river,

The chanting of bells,

The joy of spring

Are indeed sweet,

Alas; but not – as sweet

Sweet as you are

The dreams which drive,

The morning that awakes

The dance of birds,

The blossoming of flower

And the beauty of nature,

Are indeed sweet,

Alas; but not – as sweet

Sweet as you are

The morning sun –

The night sky,

The glowing of worms –

The twinkling of stars

The wandering clouds

The happiness of mind,

The oneness with god

Are indeed sweet,

Alas; but not – as sweet

Sweet as you are

The glimpse of the beloved,’

The feeling of being loved

The heart beats of thy lover,

The joy for union,

Silent feeling – a deep nostalgia

Are indeed sweet,

Alas; but not – as sweet

Sweet as you are

The sweetness of sweet,

Can’t describe – the sweet of you

So I coined a new word – ‘sweet-an’ –

To foretell – the sweet in you

It is sweeter than the sweet

Indeed very sweet

Alas; but not – as sweet

Sweet as you are.
