Love is in the air...


Know that it is Love (Valentine Special)

When the heart stops then races,
When something clutches the heart,
When blood rushes through the veins
fast and colours your countenance hot,
When the heart takes a flight, elated is your mood,
When you are in seventh heaven, feet in the clouds
When the world comes alive, for no reason at all...

Know that it is love.

When you want to give and sacrifice,
When you want die in his arms
When you want to stand up for his cause,
When you want to be with him
every minute of the twenty-four hours
When every minute of waiting stretches to an eternity...
When a moment of ecstasy's etched eternally in your heart.

Know that it is love.

When your heart's shattered to pieces,
Your world comes crumbling down,
When the breath chokes in your throat,
When the walls of your existence
Come crashing down in a trice.
When you feel you are sinking
into a pit-less abyss dark...

Know that it was love...
