Ode to My Nalaypem


You are so beautiful that
Even the roses envy your loveliness.
Like a blissful creature bestowed upon man.
To teach him of worship,
You have come to me.

Your eyes shine so vivid
That even the stars shy away and
The creator himself with bliss
Carved your face.
Your kiss is sweeter than the sweetest nectar
That I say;
‘O sweet Nalaypem, make me immortal with a kiss’.

Fortune has favoured me  
With your eyes guiding me.
I now m grateful for its bounty
Of delivering you to me.

If Shakespeare were to write a poem on you,
He would have done so that it would make me envious.
But he would have found no word
Beauteous enough to label you.
For you are far sweeter than frail Juliet,
Far bolder than Portia and far beautiful than Helen.
You are to me what I ever wanted in love.
My passion has come alive with you,
To make my human flesh Godly and good,
Capable of love that is to bloom.


‘O sweet Nalaypem I love thee much.
That I now wish to rise with thee or not rise at all’.

  1. I expect Nalaypem would be your wife, isn't she? I am awe-struck with this poem, in fact, overwhelmingly inspired. And I stay here, reading it, she is so lucky. She is your creative muse though. And I love to take a few lines from here: "...make me immortal with a kiss" and "you are far sweeter than frail Juliet, Far bolder than Portia and far beautiful than Helen."

    1. Yes Riku, she is my wife. She is the best thing that has happened to me. Thank you for reading.
      The line you liked "make me immortal with a kiss" is actually from Doctor Faustus by Christopher Marlo and the other one is mine. Thought I should give proper credit.

      Thanks a lot for reading.

  2. Wow, Nobu sir. Really wonderful! I enjoyed reading the poem. Let ma'am Pem (if that's her name) know that one of Nobu sir's reader is reminding her to feel lucky to have a poet hubby singing an ode to her beauty. :) Keep writing, sir. Although you write less often, it nonetheless is always wonderful and enjoyable. Keep writing. Hope you are doing fine. Looking forward to more such writings. :)

  7. Novu, Written with a clear conscience and full of love and and care....i enjoyed reading it....keep posting more....

    Ur last lines summed it up perfectly of how much u love her: "I love thee much.
    That I now wish to rise with thee or not rise at all." and yes, i also loved these lines: "If Shakespeare were to write a poem on you,
    He would have done so that it would make me envious.
    But he would have found no word
    Beauteous enough to label you.
    For you are far sweeter than frail Juliet,
    Far bolder than Portia and far beautiful than Helen."
