A Ballad For You
I don't know how to tell you
How much you mean to me.
You've taken my breath away
And like a feather, I floated when you were there.
Like sunshine, you were a sigh of relief
A short respite from the cruel workplace.
At nights, I thought about you
Giving kindness new heights
There was nothing less about you.
Somehow your impossible genuineness,
To take what you love and nurture it,
A pledge to be better everyday,
The best of words to others,
Your heart on your sleeve,
Melted my tough steel self
And I looked within myself, inspired by you
Unlucky are the ones that couldn't enjoy your company
For to be with you is a blessing,
I couldn't ask for more
An angel on this earth,
Your existence assures mine.
That soft heavenly face, never angered
Prettiest of eyes bearing a sparkle
A smile that keeps me alive everyday
I found hope again that a person like you
Can fix the world piece by piece
To speak of you and end would be a futile effort
For no amount of speeches
Could make the beautiful soul that you are, justice
And thus, all I can say is thank you
