There Is No Face As Fair - Poem by Gert Strydom

There is no face as fair
and dear to me
as yours
and no light shines as bright
and pure
as the look in your eyes.

If anything endures
it’s your heart that is true
and pure
and strike me with sincerity.

You alone satisfy the hunger
of my soul
and come as the drug
that brings sense and sensibility
when I want to brake free
from the things surrounding me.

Even if the world is sick
and malignant with horror,
pain, unfairness, cruelty
and hardship,
you still remain
the light in my life
and the one
that brings clarity
to the abyss around me
because you love unselfishly.
