Did I ever truly see sunrise
till I saw it next to you?
The colours rise before my eyes
in a more magnificent hue.
Did every crumb consumed
pass pabulum, gone to waste?
My mouth yearns for yours,
lush lips linger on the taste.
Did my ears hear sweet music
till you trilled you love me too?
Every single sound seems sweeter,
my heartbeat’s chorus calls you do.
Did my hugging hands
ever experience such a tender touch?
Carefully caressing me back,
each embrace soothes so much.
In order to know pure pleasures,
did I have to go through the pain?
Tears cried cleared with kisses,
dried like sunshine after the rain.
