Theme: Love


Like a whiff of fresh air,
With tenderness and care,
I pervade the universe,
In ways many and diverse.
As in the air I float along,
My scent lingers for long.
I can often right a wrong,
And create bonds strong.
I resonate in heartbeats,
Performing many feats.
When in me they fall,
Lovers lose sense of all.
I touch people in many ways,
For me, they race and chase.
Mine is an undeniable presence
That can also be felt in absence.
I light up lives and faces,
I am found in all places.
Many splendored am I,
For me folks live and die.
