IF I EVER TRULY LOVE

If I ever truly love
I will love many in one
And the one in many

II
If I ever truly love
I will love a lion in frame and half heart
With eagle feathers
With the prowess of cat in cuddling
One who has some bit of dog’s servitude
Mixed with some pride of a peacock
With a purity like that of a dove

III
If I ever truly love
Colours will never be looked down upon
I will honour it all
Black as ebony
White as snow
They all will have
Shadows of darkness

IV
If the selected loves blue
And adores pink and its intended yellow
I will know I have hit the jackpot
And my heart will develop wings
To fly onto that tree

V
If I ever truly love
Nature too will have its rights
I will consider a very bright sun in quarter
With a moon
And a sky which will accommodate stars
And make way for clouds, thunders and lightening
And still give way to darkness
To aid eyes in rest

VI
If I ever truly love
From earth to up above
I will surrender like a proud soldier
Meeting her superior
And submit to his will
Knowing surrender as a win
A win of embrace
Of smiles
Of happiness
Only then will I accept
That I have truly truly loved
