Today happens to be my best friend Anupriya’s birthday. Anu runs the blog Amour Infini (go check it out!). She has been my muse for the longest time now and I am forever grateful for a friend like her in my life. So I wrote a little something for her today (because art is forever and inspiring people like her deserve to be appreciated all the time!).
How does one find the words to describe
A bond made out of stars and fate?
Crossed paths, destinies intertwined;
How things change in all but one day!
A soul so beautiful I’d never seen,
I’d never had such good fortune,
But something changed on that fateful day,
And together, we’re stronger than we’ve ever been.
Several words I have for you, dear friend,
You’re a ray of sunshine on the darkest days;
Head in the clouds, what a beautiful mind!
For you, I still fall short of words to say.
As though Venus herself blessed you love,
Never have I seen a kinder heart,
You shine with the brilliance of the full moon
And the burning fire of a thousand stars.
The grace of swan over a still lake,
Sparkle in the eyes like that of stardust,
Eternal love and warmth in your gaze;
What words shall ever be enough?
Giving more than you ever take,
When it’s the whole world you deserve–
My muse, source of endless poetry,
I only ever wish you all the joy and love.
