My love for you has grown to a beauty beyond comparing Words are too frail to fashion and my heart too full to speak. Only my soul may whisper of the joy that we are sharing, Only my lips may tell your lips what words in vain would speak! My love for you has blossom'd as a bright exotic flower, flower of fadeless fragrance, loved by love's deathless dew. Words are too frail to fashion the breathless surge of love's power. Only my lips upon your lips may measure my love for you!
