My Darling

When my sweetheart, in happy mood,
Sings, trills and chirrups like a bird,
I savour each sweet moment,
And dwell on each happy note.
I have no wish to interrupt;
I only want to listen, listen, listen.

When her eyes flash merry and bright,
And her cheeks are red as berries,
Her pearly teeth flashing white,
Then boldly I gaze deeply into her eyes,
And her mouth, wanting to kiss her -
I only want to kiss kiss kiss her!
