Velvet maiden

For my very special lady who inspires me to write

Velvet Maiden

Velvet maiden of the dawn
You graceful butterfly
You touch my heart with all of you
And me, I’ll not deny
That I be mesmerized by you
Your anthem plays within
I look at you; a symphony begins…

I see you there my Aphrodite
My rose of tenderness
And something deep within me stirs
And does my heart caress
As heartstrings start off one by one
A symphony of love
And makes the heavens resonate, above.

A long, long time ago, my love
You crashed into my life
You married me, you nurtured me
I caused you so much strife
For you my heart is flowing deeply
With love so very true
I love you babe, I’ll tell the world “I do”

Rose of love, how I love you
How I breath your essence daily
You’re a sweet and tender butterfly
And I would say to thee
My velvet maiden, I be yours
Oh, I be yours forever
Yes, I’ll be yours until the twelfth of never
