It isn’t only nature that is Beautiful

“Isn’t it beautiful?” she exclaimed pointing to the plunging valley

The smile adorning her face was unadulterated, original & full of glee

Yet another peak had been conquered by this inveterate hiking woman

Who lead life to the fullest retaining in the face of all adversity, pluck and fun

 

But for him, few things mattered including a coursing river or the profuse green

Nor did he have time for lasting monuments or peacocks that gloriously preen;

His heartbeat was the beautiful lady who was the very epitome of bliss and cheer

So long as she was with him there was no force on earth that could induce in him any fear

 

He lived in her convincing voice and in her dazzling smile lay his sole solace

While days were spent in her memories, nights whirled away framed by her beatific face;

She was his beginning, his end and without an iota of doubt his very destiny

Just her presence and proximity liberated him and set him gloriously free

 

Undiminished and unfettered,  he found in her company his self, absolute and true

Angels of her ilk were remarkably rare, and unfortunately so very few

But it was his spell blinding fortune that he was a chosen one

For he knew with absolute certainty that another of her like, there could be none

 

He knew not whether this precious treasure could be his for life

This nagging doubt beset him without respite setting off an internal strife

But the very fact that he knew her would in the end, lend him a modicum of ease

When the time finally comes for him, he would see her magnificent face before resting in peace
