You lift my heart in minstrel verse, With harmonies that sing of praise. But doleful longing can''t traverse The depth of distance in your gaze. I''ve long desired that velvet kiss; With suffered wish, to glimpse your face. Each wish is but love''s reminisce, A burning yearn for your embrace.
I only have my simple word To stand in stead of sweet caress. But know, my words are warmly stirred with promise born of tenderness. Across the reach of space and time Come strings of stardust''s woo in rhyme.
