I can hear your heart beating.
It has a rhythm that skips.
Lub dub-dub lub dub
I don’t believe that I am causing this. Am I?
You have a smile that surpasses my expectations
as an angel who only sees potential and brings me joy.
Lubdub-dub lub dub
Every wrinkle in your face does this effortlessly.
There is an eternal sky above us.
It has marked the day you arrived on Earth. See it?
With a sigh
your presence makes time fade away
every second you hold my hand.
