Your eyes are magnificent
like doves on summer’s day.
Your eyes of almond matrix
bring life to spring like green.

Your voice of golden fortune
brings singing to my ears.
Your smile of sultry passion
brings pounding to my breast.
When I am next to you
my life becomes of heaven,
and worries seize to exist.
