When first I gazed upon her lovely face,
My heart did skip a beat and then it soared,
For in that moment, time and space erased,
And I was left with love that I adored.
Her eyes, as bright as stars on moonless nights,
Did captivate my soul and hold it fast,
And in her presence, all my wrongs felt right,
As if my heart had found its home at last.
And when she spoke, her voice was like sweet song,
That filled my ears and set my heart ablaze,
And though I knew our love would not be long,
I couldn’t help but bask in love’s sweet haze.
For though our time together may be brief,
Her love will be my heart’s eternal chief.
