Now we are together…gone is loneliness… nights are filled with music… because you said yes…dreams
have made the journey…to reality… arms entwine like roses… now there’s you and me… wonderful the magic…
of a burning kiss… and I’m truly grateful… to be part of this… what was once important… seems nothing at all…
my heart hears you sighing… it answers your call… you are warm and tender… like the hush of spring…
you’re the queen who makes me… feel just like a king… time with you is precious… sweet the love I feel…
I am prone to wonder… can it all be real… happiness is blooming… faded is the past… hold me and enfold me…
we’re alone at last.
