There’s this rare feeling that I can’t explain

It’s somethin’ from which I can’t refrain

Unexpected, yet I feel it may be true

I’m inlove with you

Mere words can never say

How much I feel inside for you

You were sent me from heaven above

To be my angel, to be my guide

And now I thank God…

It’s you that I got

My life was once a lonely one

But you’ve changed it to a happy one

I’ve believe without a doubt

That I have just discovered

What true love is all about

My love for you will never end

Because every wound I will mend

I wish we can but I know we can

Hold on ‘til the day I’m yours

And your mind completely.
