Years and years later, When the two girls were much older, They still walked alongside one another, Warm hands clasped tightly together An expression of forever
You keep showing me kindness after kindness, A bittersweet realization that more Will never be within my reach The kindness that glimmers In your bright eyes and serene smile, Is really just a hidden cruelty
Soft breeze drifts along, Bringing the light scent of salt Waves caress the shore
Blossoming in me, With a warmth sweet as sugar, The joy of new love
Your love revived my withering soul.
