Unlicensed Love

Written by: Roy Keith

On a summer's day long, long ago
 I fell in love and I'll never know
 Just what it was that made me feel
 So drawn to her, what the appeal
 That set my pulses so to race
 When e'er I gazed upon that face
 Of one who was scarce but a child
 Yet even then could drive me wild
 I'll never know the how's and why's
 I lost my heart to Hazel Eyes
 But when I got that long sought kiss
 I knew I'd found my Perfect Miss
 My elfin girl from down the lane
 And I'll never let her go again

 For how could I describe our love?
 Romantic love, all hearts and flowers
 No way to count the days and hours
 Spent in self-indulgent wishes
 And thoughts of long awaited kisses
 Of sweet embraces, tender sighs
 And gazing into love filled eyes
 Oh yes, it is that kind of love

 Or, is it yet the love of passion
 The ecstasy that knows no ration
 That shuddering nerve-tingling feeling
 The climax with your senses reeling
 The wondrous joy when you discover
 That sweet surrender to your lover
 Oh yes, it's that kind of love too.

 Or even yet a love that grows
 One that cares and one that knows
 That sees beyond the outer skin
 Into the person deep within
 That loves the spirit and the soul
 The inner self that makes the whole
 Built on trust and empathy
 A love you know was meant to be

 The love we share is all these things
 A love that has no need of rings
 A love you never need to doubt
 A love I cannot live without
 A love to last us all our days
 A love I'll share with you always
