It’s easy to see

The delight I am taking

In this life

I am always smiling

I am in love

If I had never held your hand

Never been so close

To the most kissable lips in the universe

Never wanted ever so much

To rest my tongue in your dimple

Maybe I could sleep at night

If this question I ache to ask

could be answered

If only I could stop dreaming

of you

Maybe I could sleep

at night
