My Woman


For this beauty beyond the dreams of a goddess
I can dance on the head of a pin to behold your face
I can weave words to the palace of your heart

For this beauty that charm my eyes
I can defeat a flock of arm warriors with my bare hands
I can walk mountains and cross oceans to catch the beauty you exudes

For this beauty that haunt me
I can spill inks writing you electrifying ballads
I can sing songs that tickles the sole of your heart

For this work of art in human form
I can woo you to the harem of my throne
And save you from the harshest scourge of men
