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.
