Stars - no stars can penetrate my darkness like the embers in your eyes Fire - no fire can match the passion of your lips when in my dreams we kiss The pool of compassion deep within your sapphire eyes can't quench the flame of my desire for you, you are my every vision, every wish wrapped up in one, a dream once forgotten, now fulfilled in you. Rose - no rose can equal the sweet fragrance of your tenderness and charm, Honey - no honey can quite surpass the luscious taste of beauty nor of love, the lustre of your velvet face whenever you but smile, your radiance of grace wears no disguise, my wishes all pursued in the fragility of dreams whenever I but touch you with my eyes. Songs - no poetry can touch the simple pleasure of that whisper in my ear I long to hear I long to hear.
