The sharp sunlight on my skin

felt like velvet ribbons

when you held my hand.

And we walked the entire way

breathing in each other’s love.

It was so beautiful,

it is so beautiful,

it will forever be beautiful,

because when I close my eyes

I can go over our time again –

when you were looking at me

with the amount of love

I dared not hope to receive

in a million years.

But there I stood

cleansed from the inside it felt.

And I am sure of the fact

that the time meant and means

the greatest thing in the world to me.

My fatigue, my anxiety

was all gone

My heart beat faster –

I could feel your love

running in waves

through my body –

and I can feel it even now.
