I'll sing you in colourful verse
Paint you so vibrant in rhyme,
Describe your beauty in words,
Rehearse it on paper in time.

Poetry will capture your worth,
Your light and your love be described.
Your life from your death back to birth,
Immortal, in these words of mine.

It's easy to
Fall into the warmth of your friendship.
You subtly capture me
In your gentle gaze and smile,
Make me feel that nothing matters.
Hold me, envelop me in your closeness.
Time shared with you is
Always a pleasure.
