Sickness and tears; joy and laughter; sorrow and health
Quietly line your streets as the days slip away
From the ones who purse their lips in endless pursuit
Of nothingness – the things we all boast about

In Love

Like a freshly blooming daisy, you came and

Lit up my world

Smiling brightly and laughing heartily, with

Twinkling eyes

And talkative eyelashes and beautiful teeth.

 

Beautiful teeth

Were the reason I fell in love with a queen and

Your tender heart

Was the reason I stayed in love with a woman

Of great strength.

 

Tell me now that you fell in love with me too

As I did with you

That this love is why you are holding on to me

And will forever be.
