First thoughts, I think of you at sunrise —
In the morn when dark is leaving,
As rays and rainbows baptize
Your form — your gentle bosom heaving.
Each breath, each sigh — I linger long,
Sweet emotions; all is right
And heartbeats softly sing their song —
Through day and into night.
With gentle kisses — hush, no more cries,
I’ll n’er leave you agrieving,
Though tears may well in lovers’ eyes
With their motives, n’er deceiving —
Then as I nestle by your side
I’ll hold you close, so very tight
To stay with me — with you abide,
Each day and every night.
A New Beginning
