Unforgettable Words
If I know what love feels like today,
It’s because of you.

You came into my life and showed me
That love is not demanding
Nor possessive, it's gentle and
Liberating.

If I know what love looks like today,
It’s because of you.

You came into my life and showed me
The true possibilities and colours of love.
Now my world is like the first day
In spring, my flowers are always Blooming.

If you see the radiance of my smile,
Don't be surprised.
It's because of you.

You came into my life
And rearranged the hurt and pains.
Now my smile brings light
To my life again.

If I seem to be at peace these days,
It’s because of you.

You taught me how to manage
My stress and shoo my depression
Miles away, out of sight and out of Mind.

If you hear joy in my voice these days,
It’s because of you.

Ever since you came my way,
My life has not been the same-
The beauty in my life today
Is all because of you.
