Sweetest Kiss

I close my eyes
from the warmth of your kiss on my forehead
and wonder how I ever thought I knew love.
No one's ever kissed me there
so simple
and honest
meaning everything.
In this second you wipe away
a lifetime of tears
and ungranted wishes.
In this second I am thankful
for every heartache
and broken promise
that helped me keep searching for you.
