Josephine, can I tell you a secret…
Despite my stamina, I fell at the first push of your love.
I tried…
To hold back my feelings
To give my heart a break
Each time, my heart breaks!

Josephine can I tell you a story…
Any genre you like will do
For me it’s all about an excuse
An excuse to lay down by your side as I speak softly into your ears.

Josephine, can I hold your hands…
To feel that soft little palm of yours
To squeeze them lightly in a reassuring way
While i look into your eyes and savor the feeling of beholding a beautiful soul.

Josephine, can I take you to church…
In front of the entire congregation
In the presence of God and His Priest
To say I do to vows I can’t fully remember
‘Cos I do
I do love you.
