Lips so soft and fragile
Pale pink as they part
Like rosebuds they pause
Stop pounding, my heart

Beautiful and tender
In the pale moonlight
Reaching and longing
What a magnificent sight

Full of color, full of wonder
Like a young girl’s blush
Inviting and marvelous
Lures you to touch

Sensations are pulsing 
And pulling me in
I want to move forward
So love can begin
