Why I Should Love Something As Worthless As You - Poem by Z H Khan
You came to me (an ocean tide
carried you to where I lay)
My heart, two shells, they opened up
To tuck you deep away.
And if you say (I disagree)
As base as sand and nothing more
Is simply all you'll ever be
Then sand I shall adore.
A grain of sand sought rest in me
(my heart, my soul, my pleasure)
and bit by bit a pearl becomes
And you- my greatest treasure.
