The Taj

On the banks
of the Yamuna
a monument stands
a dedication
to the memory
of an undying love
a symbol of
a bygone era
a continuing inspiration
to the world
a work of art
an architectural marvel
the labour of many
inspired by
one persons love
a tomb for a beloved
a gift to the world
a picture so perfect
it awes the beholder
and each time
that I stand
in front of this
white marble wonder
there is more
than just the beauty
of the sight
that holds me spellbound
it is the thought
of the intensity
of the emotion
that inspired its creation
and the sadness of the man
whose gift to the world
was never seen
by the woman
that he loved.
