Every sweet kiss I plant on your tender lips is reciprocated
And my fingers trace along your skin with fondness stated
My heart swells in concert with yours
The partner meant to be whom affection lures

Now here we sit in this restaurant, sanguine and genial
Engaged in the conversational and the prandial
I would protract these moments and make them endless
And be by your side in a stance timeless
