Namaste

By Jennifer Walsh-Rupakheti

 

I look at you

From my heart

And my heart opens

To see you

Namaste

 

Your eyes dazzle me

As your heart

Sings through them

Namaste

 

Your smile wakens me

As your soul

Speaks to me

Namaste

 

Your beauty captures me

And i forget time

Namaste

 

You look back at me

 

Our souls meet

 

Namaste
