A Gem released to the earth,
Kept in dark lovely skin,
She walks with gait,
Like an Amazon
Of her admirers.
With each step,
Her candour and courage
Blast my mortal heart.
Knowing I must have been hit by love.
Feared I may become her prisoner,
She surrendered to me!
Happy Birthday, my captive…
May God smile upon you today;
May He grant all your heart’s good wishes;
May He guide & guard our ship to divine fulfillment.
I care, as ever!
Signed: Your Captor
