Like an angel sent forth from the skies
Your beauty radiates even from thy precious eyes
How can I define this heart of yours?
My heart beats randomly in chaos.
Could this be love all the way ?
These feelings are different and they are not present everyday.
Your appearance has brought me much joy
And now I am singing and dancing like a child
Who says that Love cannot make a music of joy
No matter how stressed, your thought has made my pains so mild.
I could go on and on unto forever
But there’s no one I can talk about even better.
I see the beauty of thy precious heart
So tender and lovely I’ll treasure forever
Your heart beat I can feel in my own heart
I see in you, the heart of a rose.
