Keep me lost, forever, in the beauty of your precious eyes.


I smile in the evening air tonight
Not for lack of feeling
But for the hope that midnight
Often brings

I remember clearly
The soft of your touch
I remember distinctly
Those lips I miss, oh, so much

Two forms combined
In natural unison
In lover’s sighs
Melting into the morning’s

You called to me in my dreams
You sang to me a beautiful melody

Come one, two, three
A perfect fairytale fantasy

Dear love,

We may be miles apart
But, the warmth of your affections
Will always remain,

In the gentle corners of my heart.
