My Everything

Sherry Caayupan is a poet from the Philippines.

You are my strength,
I could live a day with only one cent;
Just in your arms, my life is perfect,
No diamond or gold ring could ever compare;

Love is a treasure,
Love is you and everything;
I am yours, no one can measure,
What we have, not a tangible thing;

Your looks is a gemstone,
A face that made blue-blood slaves;
While men who walk with only scarce loans,
Bestow you with love rich in the month of May;

Our love is, even if passing through time,
Never went dry and too old;
Only with one kiss, our lips will tie,
We will forever be undeniably bold.
