Oh, but did my love for you emerge and vastly grow
When first I spied you across the room amidst the summer heat.
Within my heart, it was enlightenment as if I did know
That was your presence that made my soul most complete.
There is no other who can fill the emptiness of summer days
With lingering songs of tenderness, truth, and desire
As you, my love, have done for me in all life’s ways.
You are my love, my life, my heart – all to which I aspire.
Sing to me, and we will dance as one beneath the sun,
And I will whisper sweet words with a kiss
Until the moment we are spent and our dance is done
As eagerly we steer toward the eclipse of eternal bliss.
Oh, dearest blossom of summer love, I hold you dear,
Pray, keep me close, forever in your sight and always near.
