Like a stroke of fresh paint on an old canvas,
your love rejuvenates.
Like a cup of fresh coffee on a busy morning,
your love revitalizes.
Like a bouquet of flowers in the middle of a room,
your love beautifies.
Like rocks in a river filtering fresh water,
your love cleanses.
Like seeing candy through the eyes of a child,
your love excites.
Like a long, big hug from the most caring arms,
your love comforts.
Like salt on white rice,
your love brings out the taste.
Like a blank stare at a breathtaking sight,
your love is peace.
Like the rolling of eyes,
your love says it all without saying a thing.
Like a heartfelt smile,
your love feels good.
Like knowing there is no tomorrow,
your love is presence.
Like the hands of Amparo,
your love heals.
