When we first met, I’d forgotten my laugh,
My self-worth was slashed from a whole to a half,
I couldn’t see past all the torment and pain,
To want to start living and giving again.
Then you tiptoed in on an indolent breeze,
And I quickly fell prey to a pleasing disease.
I felt the first rays of sun in my heart and my soul
I felt a real measure of refuge, control,
You reminded me that I would thrive on a smile,
That laughter alone made this world seem worthwhile.
You brought a new meaning to the glory of life,
My saviour, my lover, my soulmate, my wife.
