Aishwarya Rai

a poem by Ameet Nair

This poem is dedicated to Miss World 1994 – Aishwarya Rai

Dearest ASH,

You are a gorgeous woman – a delicate soul;
One with exotic beauty and a matching brain,
I’ve looked once and I’ve looked again
but from looking once more I cannot refrain.

Although your negligence torments me
my love shall never fade,
I shall wait for that glorious day
when you embrace me in your shade.

I am a confident and aspiring one;
To lose I’ve never learnt,
The flame of love within me
still burns and has always burnt.

The world mocks me and my love;
But the consequences I do not fear,
For envious people and their words
to spare I have no tear.

My love shall scale all barriers
that lie between you and me,
Our love shall be eternal
for the future generations to see.
