Albena's Answered Prayer by Manatita
He looked beseechingly into her eyes and smiled,
And her soul flew to the horizon.
The radiance of the glowing sun, Merged
with the warmth of the joyful flutter inside her heart,
As she cried with overflowing delight.
Long had she travelled; Toil had she done,
to culminate in this unspoken moment.
Indeed, Albena embarked
On a seemingly fruitless search.
Now, at this angel-blessed moment,
The song of gratitude was like a sweet psalm,
Brought by the nightingale itself,
Caressing her re-awakened emotions,
On this serene and blissful stop in time.
He stirred, and his dainty feet
Pattered beneath her breast,
As she lifted him to her bosom
To give his pure white sustenance.
Slowly, hunger and emotions abated;
They both fell into reverential silence.
