  • A stolen moment of unspoken want;
    A fleeting thought so impure
    A heart that wanders, a spirit daunt
    A leaf she trembles; one can't endure

    A zephyr caresses your chiselled chin;
    She longs to kiss the marcel from your brow
    A burning fire beneath the skin,
    A yearning exchanged; will time allow?

    You walk through the gate
    And she looks up
    A moment too late;
    Her heart you have stopped

    For just that moment and forever
    To hold your hand and be together
