come away with me,

walk beside me on pebbled roads

between the green pines.

kiss me under a sycamore.

love me,

seduce me with your kindness.

sweet words hanging thickly in the air,

lay me down

in a grassy meadow

or on a bed of sand beside a lake.

watch the twinkle of the fireflies,

catch them for me if you can.

encircled in your embrace,

unending days melding into eternity.

forever in a day

forever in this life with you.

these are my vows to you.

A Serenade.
