Love, all-consuming, building in passion, until at last quenched by that first kiss.
I came to wake you from your sleep.
To trumpet ardour from my heart;
To taste your full lips long and deep.
My adoration from the start
Was yours to own; to waste; to keep.
My fondest hope, to win your heart!
You move about my waking world;
Disrupt my mind with what may seem
To be a wanton will en-whirled.
My heartbeat quickens! Love redeemed!
My passion for your love unfurled
Envelopes all my waking dreams
You tease me just a wit, in wile,
As now I catch you glance my way,
And there! A glimmer of a smile.
Your eyes, so deep, I’m in their sway.
You move and I’m at once, beguiled.
I dream of you both night and day!
The thought of you, as with your scent,
Intoxicates my captive brain
I cherish you in love, knees bent.
Though storm clouds gather o’er the plain,
At last you, in my arms relent.
I kiss you in the rain.
