ROMANCE ME WITH A SONG OF LOVE
for Gioia

Serenade me in my season of sorrow,
sing your usual part,
and let me see your gypsy dance
that so excites my heart.
Serenade me with your nakedness,
give me your hand without its glove.
Romance me with a song of love.

Serenade me in my hours of struggle,
gather me in your arms,
purr with cat contentment,
enchant me with your charms.
Serenade me with your laughter,
the kind that is a triumph.
Romance me with a song of love.

Serenade me in my days of anger,
thrill me with your touch,
use the tenderest caresses
I always crave so much.
Pamper me with your kisses,
with lips like a fluttering dove.
Romance me with a song of love.

Serenade me in my night of despairing,
solace me with your tales,
tell me of the noble prince
whose courage never fails.
Console me with the wisdom
which comes from high above.
Romance me with a song of love.

Serenade me in my time of heartache,
comfort me with your embrace,
there is no need for speaking now,
there is no cause for haste.
Serenade me with those soulful eyes
I’ve never stopped dreaming of.
Romance me with a song of love.
