Miracle Man
Gautam Sen


You so pervade my being
Like oxygen in air,
That wherever I ever am,
You also are.
From single I've grown
To two-in-one;
You're my expansion
And my delight,
And in my grief
You turn my tears
To drops of pearl;                                                                                                                    
What's lead in me

You change to gold
You've made me rich beyond comparison,

And when I dispense

From my abundance,

I see your hand

In all my giving.

In a world from where monarchy has gone

You're my Queen

And I'm your King,

And there's nothing that we gaze upon

That isn't gilded

By our union.

It's thanks to you

I'm thus transformed

From an also-ran

To a miracle man.

ah yes, in a world where monarchy is gone / You're my Queen / And I'm your King. Haunting.
