The smile you place upon my lips and kiss,
Resonates within my heart’s core, dive in,
When you ask for as kiss, you sip, such bliss.
Letting time build and love restore within,
Pain once existed, left in night of dark.
Touching your skin, which I adore, no sin.
Laughter is all I feel, nothing which is stark,
Before you, life was emptiness, depart —
Giggling, smirk, hear the cheerful larks.
j0kes, yours are genius of heart,
Never failing to make you smile, I try.
Dry wit turns away soberness, take heart.
When I think of you grinning while I sigh.
Thinking, words which will turn sadness away.
rich laughter, love’s no trial, stay awhile.
Future is distant, with gladness I pray,
As we age you I know, I’ll adore you and grin.
Young love requires days of madness, I say.
No doubt in my mind, you are rightly mine.
No doubt in your mind, I’m your light shining.
The smile you place upon my lips and kiss.
Letting time build and love restore within.
