Breath of fresh air!

i went to bed
trying to remain awake
for fear of breaking this
lovely dream of you and me!

wondering if i sleep,
these dreams would drift away into darkness
never to return again,
i kept my eyes open!

a beautiful smile
that’s hard to forget
you entered my soul
like a breath of fresh air!

swimming deep in darkness
i came to the surface for air,
and i have not gone back
ever since that day!

ever since you sneaked into my soul,
life has changed completely
struggling to push darkness away
i was toying with life!

i don’t understand how it happened,
i was on the road to nowhere
you came in and took hold of my soul
putting me back on to the path of happiness!

i thought i knew what love was,
i thought i knew everything,
now sitting here writing this,
i feel i am so lost without you!
