#NaPoWriMo Day 13

Prompt: A ghazal

You were once but a stranger, I allowed you in,
There was no door to knock on, but you walked in.

Like a deep sea diver, searching for the pearl,
You could not swim, but you plunged right in.

There were no questions, yet so many answers,
New love to explore, new terrains to touch.

The power of quiet, in a world full of noise,
The power of love, in a world full of hate.

When we shall meet, perhaps you could lead me in
To your heart, where I would like to live.

Where our souls shall meet, let's stay awhile.
Lie with me on the grass, as the rain pours down.

Extraordinary ordinariness is all I can give
Hold my hand now, dear, let us begin.
