I watch you stir from dreams this early morn,
just as the warming rays of sunshine dawn.
You spread your arms, eager to embrace.
I plant a kiss upon your lovely face.
Then, rising with the wind, our hearts aglow,
we plant seeds of love and watch them grow.
And we nurture our creation tenderly,
joined in passion, joy, and ecstasy.
When morning bursts upon this halcyon day,
bright tulips greet golden rays of May.
As nesting birds of spring begin to sing,
Our fledgling love is born and set to wing.
