Over special glow

Your smile begins the show

That there’s magic all around

Flowing with kisses which abound

To scent this wonder you sent my way

The greatest Joy I’ve come across today

Witnessing such beauty on display

From ones who slumber near the ground

And sways to the breeze’s sound

It’s better not to know

Why I love you so

Midst the showers

Of the hours

A sigh
