A sliver of sun-kissed your angelic face,
pushing all signs of darkness forever away.
Count to ten. Do it twice. For your fingers then your toes.
Then place my lips against your perfectly formed nose.
Tears of joy, Tears of fear, Tears of laughter I must subdue.
Forever my world has changed to make things better for you.
Take me back to that day. That perfect day.
My youth left behind, to love you in every way.
