Ode to Joy
Ode to JOY
Swelling, swirling like a crested wave
This sweet moment I wish to save
Oh so sweet but oh so fleeting
Savouring this feeling that's worthy of repeating
No need to despair; you're always near
Even when we're apart I can always hear
Your sweet solace whispers in my ear
Your excitement and pleasure is oh so clear.
Stay with me and never leave
To your warmth I do cleave
Wash over me; Let me feel your embrace
And bask in the beauty of your sensual face.
Contented in the cradle of your arm
Your tenderness like the sunshine is warm
Subtle reminders you're not here to stay
Oh but your return I know is on its way.
