Tenderness

Wrap my name in tenderness
Tenderly touch my brow
Be tender in the words you use
Tend to my needs just now

With tender touch caress me
My heart is fainting and weak
Hold me in a tender gaze
In most tender tones now speak

My love, be tender with me
My heart is about to break
Claim me with tender kisses
Let me in tenderness wake
