  1. Love Took Me Softly By The Hand
    Poet Unknown


    Love took me softly by the hand,
    Love led me all the country o'er,
    And showed me beauty in the land,
    That I had never seen before -
    Never before- never before -
    O Love, sweet Love!

    There was a glory in the morn,
    There was a calmness in the night,
    A mildness in the south wind borne,
    That I have never felt aright,
    Never aright - never aright, -
    O Love, sweet Love!

    But now it cannot pass away
    I feel it wheresoe'er I go,
    And in my heart by night and day
    Its gladness moveth to and fro;
    By night and day - by night and day
    O Love, sweet Love!



  2. Joys Of A Living Love
    Poet Ella Wheeler Wilcox


    I love your lips when they’re wet with wine
    And red with a wild desire;
    I love your eyes when the lovelight lies
    Lit with a passionate fire.
    I love your arms when the warm white flesh
    Touches mine in a fond embrace;
    I love your hair when the strands enmesh
    Your kisses against my face.

    Not for me the cold, calm kiss
    Of a virgin’s bloodless love;
    Not for me the saint’s white bliss,
    Nor the heart of a spotless dove.
    But give me the love that so freely gives
    And laughs at the whole world’s blame,
    With your body so young and warm in my arms,
    It sets my poor heart aflame.

    So kiss me sweet with your warm wet mouth,
    Still fragrant with ruby wine,
    And say with a fervor born of the South
    That your body and soul are mine.
    Clasp me close in your warm young arms,
    While the pale stars shine above,
    And we’ll live our whole young lives away
    In the joys of a living love.



  3. In My Heart
    Poet: Unknown


    Beating winds or shining sun,
    Pouring rain or gentle dew,
    May the blossom of thy life
    Still unfold and grow in you.

    Thou art so like a flower,
    So pure and fair and kind,
    I gaze on thee, and sorrow
    Then in my heart I find.

    It seems as I must lay then
    My hand upon thy brow.
    While praying God will keep thee
    As pure and fair as now.



  4. I Never Imagined
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer


    I never imagine our relationship would be
    A love that is stronger than you can see.
    You are a romantic who is charming
    And now you are truly a darling.

    You were so thoughtful, flowers you did bring
    And oh all the special things you did bring
    But the love that you shared and made me feel
    Truly my heart you did steal.

    But looking back over the years
    I wouldn't trade you, my dear.
    I love today and tomorrow too
    My love for you will always be true!
