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.
