I thank you for your eyes

I’m truly honoured to have met you

and really glad I got to know you,

if even just a little bit


I’ve carefully recorded each smile I got from you

and I have written them into a story,

a fairytale, a wish come true


How do you miss something you never had?

Where do you even start to feel sad?

Is what I feel a mere invention?

or is it hope, a dream, my heart’s intention?


If it’s indeed only a dream,

Then I do pray I won’t wake up

Because unreal as it may seem,

I couldn’t bear to give it up


Before I go, I wish to thank you

for every fraction of a second spent

inside your magical blue eyes,

your honest heart, your pure intent
