Conflagration of desire

Today when you appear in your best
And virtue of men then comes to test
When your one sight makes him surrender
Your smile when separate you from rest

Hearts when you burn in conflagration of desire
And men feel joy of sitting in cold near campfire
In their throbbing pain when you enjoy
Yet these burnt naïve hearts more for you aspire

The day but when you shall grow old
Shivering, trembling, aching & cold
Will you be loved like you are now?
If I may ask this question being bold

Today your lips appears like rose soaked in wine
Your every fragment today appears divine
But tomorrow when you start to wither and fade
What will you do when your charm will request to resign?

Today you find young heart surrender at your feet
What you’ll do when stick you need to walk on street?
Your eyes when will grow dim & hard you find to see
Do you know my heart still for you then shall beat?

No matter if age deny to your youthful heat restore
Every time I shall think of you, brooding kisses I will pour
You may try to stop me from thinking of you
But everyday desire of your lips will grow strong then before

How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
