I still see you when I close my eyes
I still smell you when I sniff my clothes
Though far, you feel so close
And even closer in my mind's eye
You did not keep your word this time
You spoke the truth yet it was a lie
You said you were leaving and sure you did
But the truth is you never left

Write a song about me
How I make you feel
Sing it to me at our favourite spot
Sing a song to me

Write a song about love
Write a song about us
Sing it to me at our favourite spot
Sing a song to me

We'll stare into each other's eyes
Cause darling, we'll feel butterflies
If this isn't love, what is?
You and me here together
Darling, this is nothing but love.
I wrote this as a song but I changed some parts to publish it as a poem.

If I could, I would make you see
Yourself through my eyes
How perfect you are
How special you are
People say you are one in a million
I say you are one in seven billion

You are one in seven billion
You are, you beautiful star
No one like you

A lone green sprout
In a parched field
The smell of rain in
The midst of drought

I am no Prince of Serendip
My life is not a Persian fairy tale

But from this day my heart will always skip
A beat and I know this much is true
'Cause I wasn't looking, yet I found you

You are Serendipity

It is the sparkle in your eyes
Not the curve of your lips
That smile in your eyes
The smile that never lies

Charming, tender
I'll always remember
The first time you smiled at me.

Like magnet to metal
Your smile draws me in
You taught me how to smile
Your smile; I hope it never lies
The kind of smile that comes from deep within.

In the morning, old becomes new
Birds sing as black slowly turns blue
In the morning, my fears are taken
My faith is stronger, I am not shaken

My fears are taken by morning's rebirth
Fresh as the dew clinging to my feet
In the morning, there is a new me to meet
Whom the blinding night has deemed fit to birth

In the morning, my flaws are still the same
Like the yellow sun, everyday like flame
In the morning, I remember yesterday's mistakes
And I know better what is at stake

In the morning, I let go of the night
I let go of the dark, I embrace the light
In the morning, my eyes are brighter
My dance is better, my laugh is lighter

My smile is warmer, my kiss is softer
My hug is tighter, my speech has no stutter
In the morning, I am all I want to be
Awake, refreshed, hopeful, free
