As I turned my hearts delight
It set up such a beating
My fluttering torture.....
For I am but the youngest daughter.
But, the heart doth quiver so
I hear his step alighting on the stair,
Shall I flee
Could I bear such of this deep elation.
And what if we should thus be observed
They will whisper in the halls,
Cover every trace......
Of the blush upon my face.
Hark now, he swift approaches
The door opens, I fear,
A little near
I stand, my world exploding.....
He shuffles, lunges slowly.
Time, a monumental moment
Hushed, never there a sound,
But two beating hearts,
For all of life, is now become.
Merciful Father, can I bear such delight
Too much joy, I pray, you give away,
When I wake yet,
Upon the sunrise
Will I suffer this days wise.
Or will my feet again feel earth
And see the dullness of the chore,
Oh may I dance forthwith loves song
Return again my own,
Wherefore to thou alone, my heart belongs
