Needing you

Portuguese Version

I need you because the sun has been so bright since my eyes first met yours
because the wind has been so kind since my fingers first touched your face
because life has been so delightful since my lips first kissed yours

I need you because I can't even imagine how I could've lived before meeting you
because I can't sleep at night if I don't hear your voice whispering my name
because I can't calm my mind if I don't see you sweetly smiling to me

I need you because my mouth can't utter what my heart wants to say
because my hands can't transmit what my soul really feels
because all the words I dare to write are insignificant before all you mean to me

I need you because you saved me from loneliness
I need you because you are the very best part of me
