Mumtaz Mahal
Sonnet XII 

I would assault the night and break the dawn; 
I would capture the Sun to keep its shine; 
I would accede as sacrificial pawn; 
I would redefine the Gods' grand design; 
I would force the wind to change direction; 
I would repulse the unrelenting sea; 
I would fill the void with your reflection 
To mean to you, what you'll always mean to me? 
No man can outflank the legion of death 
Even if I send in my best brigade. 
I'd stand with them and fight to my last breath 
If I could ensure your light would not fade. 
Love will fit in seventeen hectares squared, 
Testament to the meaning that we shared.
