Lately, i have developed a liking for Hindi poetry, largely due to a friend of my father, whose appreciation for poetry is incredible. How about the following from Gulzar:-
Tumhara noor hi hai jo pad rha chehre par,
Warna kaun dekhta muje andhere mein
A supreme/sublime tribute to someone. The happiness on my face is not my own, but a reflection of your presence. Otherwise I was just stumbling around in the darkness of insignificance.
And the imagery. Deep dark broken by a candle light, which reflects off your face.
