When life leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth,
Your kiss is the only flavour that removes the bitter aftertaste.
When life blurs my vision with cloudy veils of tears,
Your smile is the only light that clears the sky.
When life douses the flames of my hopes and dreams,
Your embrace is the warm blanket that blocks out the cold despair.
When life is a nightmare,
You are my beautiful wakening daydream.
