The only one
Like a bird holding onto a branch,
My heart holds on without fail.
Like a river flowing deep,
My love for you runs in me without complaint.
My only light,
Without you, I’m consumed by darkness.
The only one I know, cherish and adore,
The only one I’d die for.
Your name echoes in my brain,
Like a beautiful melody.
You’re my favourite candy,
Your sweet voice wails in my heart,
And there’s nowhere I’d rather be than
being here in your embrace.
