The Queen of Night



Oh, the queen of the night!
I will never succumb to your first kiss
Come with your fascinating attire,
Put the whole of me on fire
Come with all your grace and charm
Seduce me, make me fall in love with
Knock at me, knock at my closed door,
Again and again, to win me, win my body, mind and Heart

I know not how many times I am here
How many times we met and part
But as and when I come
You chase me like a mad beloved
To meet me, feel my touch and feel me deep inside

My love!
We part to meet and meet to part
That defines our love and romance
But our joy and ecstasy
Only for a few moments
Then begins the tedious journey of life,
It’s chill and charm and that long waiting
To give meaning to that eternal love and longing

My love!
Waiting for you since long
I know you are behind my back
Since the day I am here.
Come in front, face to face
Come with your spellbinding grandeur
I will unveil that veil and
See the girl of my dreams once more

My love!
Come once again with your filigree smile
Drooping eyes and quivering lips
I could see you, see your body, it’s curves
Speaking volumes of your love and longing
Make me full and complete
Look at me, hug me, take me in your hands
Lett me see how spellbinding my fiancee is
