    Only great love can inspire such words and images.

    Words cannot describe the feeling when reading your words.
    Thank you

    Beautiful poem πŸ‘Œ

    Maybe you get inspiration to write from her if you can’t translate.

  8. This is so good! Sometimes we can’t articulate the feelings we have for others into words. It’s easier to let the emotion reside in the heart ❀

  9. Beautiful! Your partner is very fortunate. 🌸

  10. Some things are best experienced in their original form. Translating takes away its beauty. This is an intense and absolute piece of beauty Ben!!

    Another swoony gem for the two-line poetry prize… sigh. :))
    I remember a book by this title from university days. Eva Hoffman…

    Concise and heartfelt.

    Romantic! Funny how words do that, isn’t it? Limit the limitless (whilst trying not to) πŸ™‚

  14. Wow, very touching! I admire your ability to communicate so much love in so few words, Benjamin! 🌞

  15. Very well done… as usual, immediately strikes. You have such a knack for condensing beauty in a line or two. It inspires. :))

    Brilliant, spectacular verse. You sparkle and so does your muse.

  19. To which lucky person did you dedicate this wonderful poem to? I’m so jealous!

    • A really beautiful person who shines like a million suns, belongs with the stars, reminds me of heaven … I could go and on, but I should stop here. Perhaps you’ll have poetry dedicated to you in the future. Or maybe you already do, and you just don’t know about it, because the person is too shy to share with you. Thanks for leaving your thoughts. It means a lot!

      • According to me, many poets have a person who for them “shines like a million suns, belongs with the stars, reminds them of heaven”. Even I have such people. I would love to have a poem dedicated to me. My birthday is coming soon, and one of my friends might write a poem on me. I’ve dedicated so many of my poems to them.
        I know very well how touching it is when someone leaves their thoughts!

      • You’re so right. That’s part of the reason we have so many poems and songs and stories about love. It makes so many feel a certain way about someone. Happy Early Birthday! Hopefully it’s a wonderful one! Thanks for all your thoughts!

      • Thank you so much! You are very kind!

  20. β€œI can’t translate you into a poem
    Your radiance is dulled in words”
    You represent the duality of my highest vibration, and thats why i cant make you into a poem…
