My Camel, My Love

I'm a mathematician and have taught mathematics and related courses for over 3 years. Still working on myself. Still I rise


My Camel, My Love

My love, how I love thee

For I love thee like my camel

You are as beautiful as my camel

And I love thee so

A beast of burden they call it

For true, it assists me to carry

Not only my commercial goods

Across the desert

But also my personal belongings

From place to place

But my camel means

More than just that to me

Yes, my camel means much to me

My constant companion on

My journeys across the desert

It endures not only

The heat during the day

But also the contrasting cool of the night

And together we gaze at the

Star-lit desert sky at night

From its skin, I have a tent for shelter

Clothing for my body

And sandals for my feet

Ornaments I make from its bones

Nourishment I get from its meat

And nutrition I get from its milk

Thereby sustaining my life

And keeping me healthy

My adoration for my camel

Can, therefore, be seen

And such too is the adoration

I have for you my love

And believe me, my love

When I say

That I love you

As I love my camel.
