It is not hard

It is not hard to fall in love with you,

Your smile, the way you speak and mesmerize,

Captivate a crowd with myst’ry in your eyes

Would it to be you’d let me love you too.

So easily your words with hope I misconstrue

You say one thing, and then to my surprise

‘Twas like you spoke to spur my heart’s demise

With words you knew not once to have been true.

In you there lies a trove yet to explore

A hidden gem to polish once it’s found

There’s more to you than anyone can see

Such precious beauty ne’er should one ignore.

Let someone care, your inner wealth abound,

And splend’rous jewel gleam in the dawn-light be
