It has been three weeks
since your delicate words
filled my mind.

Words of laughter
Words of dreams
Words of hope.

It has been three months
since your delicate words
filled my heart.

Words of pains
Words of screams
Words of fears.

It has been three years
since your delicate words
filled my life.

Words of laughter and pains now touch us
Words of dreams and screams now soothe us
Words of hope and fears now bring smiles to us.

It has been three lifetimes
since your delicate words
kept me together.

For me
For you
For us.
