Some exceptionally beautiful lines from the book which I found truly impressive-
I feel your presence in air.
The pair as us is very rare.
From far away your face flares,
I blush to know you are there.
There is no one with whom I can compare.
You are the beauty of this universe I declare.
With the words and the love that I share,
I wanted to let you know I care.
With The feelings to lose you I scare..
I’ll simply die, if I lose, beware..
From the earth to sky’s Seventh layer,
My love in only you, I swear..
