Do you know how it feels to be in love?
The sweetness everywhere –
in the smiles of strangers;
in the cute antics of a child;
in the music playing in your ears;
in the skies above?
How suddenly everything takes on a new feel
and you feel as though –
you could be anyone, could do anything
and your life seems to have a meaning
and you live in the here and now?

I do, and I hope you do …

Do you know how it feels to have your heart broken?
The pain everywhere –
how you forget to smile
how that song now hurts you
how you can’t seem to breathe
how you envy the dead?
And you wish you had never
known the joy of ever
having been loved
cause now though dying
you’ve to pretend you are alive?

I do, and I hope you never do …
