I knew its gentleness;

When I entered this world

And my mother welcomed me

With her soft lips on my cheeks.


I knew its strength;

When my father kissed on my brow

And said with a smile,

“Well done my girl”.


I knew its passion;

When he gently stroked my hair

And reached out to my soft tender lips.

Ah! I wished that moment never ends.


I knew its ecstasy;

When I kissed my son,

And greeted him saying,

“Welcome to my world my little sugar cup”.


Kiss- the epitome of expression,

The spirit of love,

Oh! I wonder what life would have been

Without a kiss to share.
