Antidote

Kind words
like an antidote
to all that is ill

In one moment
I am lifted
soaring, because
of you

With one look
I am giddy,
pain forgotten,
because of you

Just one laugh
and everything is perfect,
because of you

Kind words
like an antidote
to all that is ill

This is nice! It's very precise and concise which I like about it. It just seems very clean and to the point--no dancing around the subject.

I love it. It's so true that a kind word can make everything better. There is one thing I would change, however. In the 2nd verse, last 2 lines you said "soaring,because/of you". It might be better to say "soaring/because of you". It fits the pattern you set with the 3rd and 4th verses. :)
