Touch your lips so soft,
	So sweet, to mine.
	I dare not let this moment pass!
	So swift, so fleetingly
	You are mine
	To hold and hold,
	To gaze upon
	And wonder.
	Time and time
	May come, when so fine a one
	As you
	Are no longer mine
	To kiss and hold;
	And oh! How I shall ache within
	To reach and reach
	For you who are no longer there!
	Oh kiss me now
	And now and now,
	Till no more this thought me pains.
	I dare not let this moment pass!
