Sitting in the cafe gazing out the door
I saw a scepter, such beauty, I had never seen before,
I wondered if this paragon would simply come and dine
From which “bodega” was this most precious wine

She pondered for a while
Walking through the foyer, O! What a pretty smile!
Gracefully, she sat, and I breathed a breath of sigh,
Now that she was closer, she was as pretty as the sky

Luxurious tresses sat on her shoulders and sparkles in her eyes
Yahweh used a special alabaster, to create his jewel child,
Who is this? Thundered into my apace mind
Such beauty, my sense for reason became blind

Sometimes beauty and deception are intertwined
This jewel child was not just elegant, but truly sublime,
Our sojourner’s walk is apart as the Raven and the Dove
This mystical feeling, I wondered if its love?

I know not what the tomorrows hold for this jewel child of beauty!
But, if God grants my wish to be with her, I pray for perpetuity…
