You reveal yourself

You reveal yourself to loving eyes 

Like a poem, by the greatest ever

By Him, who writes in 3 dimensions

To me, who scrawls on paper


You reach for me, I melt like ice

In a burning ring of desire

And I find a purity to my life 

Around your kind of fire 


Perhaps, O Phoenix; you're here for me 

A flame, a companion, a lover 

A delicious contradiction, who's free to be 


a poet, 

a singer, 

a dancer, 

a mother


a healer, 

a survivor , 

a teacher, 

a traveller  


a crusader, 

a home maker, 

a springboard, 

a shelter


a writer

an actor,

a siren, 

a saviour 


a leader,

navigator,

a shopper, 

a saver


a sister

a daughter, 

a worker, 

a winner


-Suraj Mani

Perhaps, O Phoenix; you're here for me
