I sink myself
Below your neckline
And inner self silently.
You surrender
At sea-bed near the shore
Under the roaring tides.
Passionately we search
Each other closing our eyes. 


 Throughout night
Your smile gathers
The petals
Of the blooming buds.
I discover
Every morning
Your freshness
Becomes the garden
Of my life.

The feelings of the father, who couldn’t see his newborn is painted soulfully,

Please convey
Our best wishes
To the New soul;
The Designer’s gift.
I wish, close to you,
She listens
The lyrics
Of the evolutionary waves

Another wonderful love poem that depicts the love beamed by children,

The kids express
The meaning of affection
And craftsman’s bliss.
Love sublimates
The musical voice
In their innocent smiles.

A sublime verse on memories of love during the life cycle of loneliness,

In loneliness
You accompany me
As fragrance of memory.
Your image lives with me
As music
With the rhyme.

He chooses to write the epilogue of life with a touch of sublime philosophy blended with divine feeling.

We walk down
The garden of life
The poetic sublime.
Wind whispers
All the songs
Of our poetic flight.
Our journey
Is an extension
Of the boundless voyage.
