Love is like a fire
Sparkling eyes, a touch of colour
Arousing a strong desire
To be close, intimate, entwined together
Like the red petals of a flower.
My lover, my soul
You fill me with joy, make me whole
Oh love, you have that spark
Banish the dark, your song is like that of a lark.
Touch me, hold me
Keep me, free me
Let your love unleash the beauty of me
My one desire, my fire
Love me to the music of the lyre.
