Let Me Count The Ways
How can I express, my dearest,
the thoughts within my heart?
That sweet affection, longing, caring,
deep despair when we're apart.
Did e'er two people care as much
or feel such joy as we?
Are we an island, darling,
surrounded by a pounding sea?
Hearts beat as one, a jungle drum,
fireworks brilliantly explode.
Surely such a fiery passion
time cannot erode.
And so, my own, I pledge to you,
just as sure as the rose is red,
I will walk with you to chapel,
there in the sight of God, to wed.
