A Given To The World

The world offers so many opportunities
Then you appeared in my life
I found warmth as we locked eyes
I felt like a child at a carnival who won a prize
My excitement filled the skies

That smile of yours shines bright
It lights up the dark night
It is amusing how life works
It can either give you the sour or sweet like desserts
Having you next to me, feels like a dream
Together in life, we will go to the extreme

You are different
Which makes you magnificent
The universe took its time on you
And that is when I knew
You are like the color blue
Beautiful and my favorite, which is true
