This is not a love song…

Some there are
whose early morning smile
lends a subtle richness
of colour-saturation
to Nature’s slide-show

Some there are
whose unassertive warmth
invests the bleakest of days
with an opulent glow
of hope
born of trust

Some there are
who add their own chiming harmonies
to the Melody of Life

But you
above all others
are
a
pain
in
the
ears…
