Love is in the eyes ...

A young woman I met at the Rai Foundation School for Girls in India recently is, among other achievements, a gifted poet.
I ordinarily don't post poetry, unless it's my own because I can apologize on the spot, but in this case I was incredibly impressed by her use of language.
Because the poet is from Bangladesh - English is her second language.

by Sukla Sarkar

Eyes tell the speech of mind
To understand the word of
every kind
Need to have a
same mind
They show the purity
in a great sign
Bring the happiness of beauty
just like sunshine
They cry together
sleep together
laugh together
Even more together
But never see each other

by Sukla Sarkar

Love from divine, Love from God
Teach us how to be cool & soft
It had come from
Adam & Eve
Til it comes from
Natural line
Love is a rainbow
after the rain
Which can refresh
and ignore the pain

Love is a bondage
promise of care
Where is a concord of heart
and just to be there
The secret of love
can't be known
Until & unless
we are alone
