A Single Shard


A single shard of happiness,

A shard of love, more or less.

A single touch, his hands are soft,

A single kiss sets it off.

There is no way he will have heard

The three special, simple, dangerous words.

'I love you,' she says quietly,

And then he smiles happily.

So he has heard, and now he smiles,

Love lights her face, they dance all the while.

A single shard of happiness,

A shard of love, it is no guess.

He holds her tight, kisses her cheek.

She is loved, nevermore to weep.

For love that is lost,

Is once again found, at any cost.

A single shard of happiness,

A shard of love, it's for the best.
