Q.1.1. THE POEM:
My Dearest Lover
My dearest lover,
Hold my hand
As the sunshine welcome’s us to this new day

I have never seen a light so bright
For that light glitters in your eyes.

As we begin to embark on this journey called life,
Let us go hand in hand
And explore the unknown
Young and in love
Free spirited and passionate,
Let us fall together
And get lost in the world of love…

I feel it as being a tormenting joy
For it shall deepen
