My Lifetime Is Too Short - Poem by Moffat Mbuzi

Inside your abode comes the perfume of paradise,
As fragrant as a nest of roses,
Indeed you're as beautiful as beauty itself;

In my heart forever I shall keep you.
I shall keep you not away from my heart,
But I'm scared my lifetime is too short for loving you.

When I'm low- you comfort me,
When I'm lonely you hold me close,
When I'm wrong you forgive me.
I always wish your love forever;
But I'm scared my lifetime is too short for loving you.

I always wish you close as much as I can,
But i'm scared my lifetime is too short for loving you.

Your love so sweet,
Your care so tender.
Your words so true,
Your bossoms so soft to touch,
Your voice like an angel;
but I'm scared our lifetime is too short.

    I like this one alot & yes it does feel like that our lives are way to short I loved these 3 lines

    When I'm low- you comfort me,
    When I'm lonely you hold me close,
    When I'm wrong you forgive me.
