You are the promised kiss of springtime that makes the lonely winter, seem long.
You are the breathless hush of evening, that trembles on the brink of a lovely song.
You are the angel glow that lights the stars.
The dearest things I know are what you are.
Someday, my happy arms will hold you.
And someday, I’ll know that moment divine, when all the things you are are mine.
