His Words are True

My darling's words are very kind
tenderly they touch my heart
with the softness of a thousand
delicate rose petals
brushing against my blushing cheek

Such gentleness sweeps my soul
to a place I have yet to know

I wish to draw his face close
in the palms of my small hands
once frozen in winter's white snow
now warming in the breath of spring
whispered from between his lips

My darling's love is true
All I need is you

A/N: "aishiteru" means "I love you" in Japanese (for my darling boyfriend, who is half Japanese)
