Can I take a moment

To look into your eyes

To see in their reflection

The way you’re idolized

Can I feel the warm embrace

Of our entwined shared love

This connection feels like

It was sent from up above

Can I show you the magic

That I feel from just your touch

Making me realize inside

Forever is not too much

Can we share eternity

Or will you turn and go

Tell me soon I beg of you

I really have to know
