Outline and Trace

All through the lonely night

I waited anxiously my love

Heart racing with delight

When I saw your gaze

Let me rest with silent splendor

Upon your gentle chest

Inhaling the fragrance

That is you

Touch with a trembling hand

Kiss the fingers

That reach out

To embrace

Outline and trace

My lover’s face

Outline and trace

My lover’s face
