Flowers Of Love

by Ehsan Sehgal

I wish my life ways were
Also the colourful
If you donated some
The colourful
Flowers of love
Into my desire bowl
Now the escape
Is impossible
Without meeting you
To think of you
It makes me uneasy
And worried
All the time
I am desperately eager
To see you
To meet you
To make you
My destiny
My heart beats
My breath
My life and love
I wish, I wish
A day would come
I then hold you
Very warmly
In my thirsty arms.
