This is honey dripping 

slowly on tongue;

this is a rose’s sweet perfume.


This is a smile from a loving friend;

this is a kiss tenderly savoured on 

a sad and tragic day.


This is a wistful song that connects

with the soulful part of you;

this is a long forgotten voice heard again.


This is the joy of being human

caught in remembrances, moments;

this is the wonder of living now.
