Love letters, love-filled wisps of white,
Floating in the endless sky
Water-vapours of feelings
Emanating from your throbbing heart
Condensing into thick clouds
Travelling great distances, to pour out your love
Into me, as I stand drenched in the downpour.
Love letters, in the form of butterflies
Flitting from one bloom to another
Hues of love streaming from your eyes
Painted on their wings lending them unmatched beauty
I listen closely, as they flutter their wings
To whisper your heart’s messages to me.
Love letters, written on parchments of leaves
Etched with the love pouring from your heart
They ride dangerously on heady currents of water
Rush excitedly to deliver your message
Standing by the mad silver brook
I collect these little green lovenotes with greed.
Kisses full of love, flying from your lips
Misty with the heavy scent of your passion
Now the gentle wind offers to play messenger-boy
Promising to deliver each one of them
Without fail, as I stand mesmerised in the high cliff.
Each element of nature loves a love-story
Each element loves to play cupid
Each pebble, each stone, craves to carry love
To fulfill the yearning of aching hearts.
