_______
 
Your green eyes with their soft lights.  Your eyes that promise sweet nights.
Bring to my soul a longing, A thirst for love divine.
In dreams I seem to hold you.  To find you and enfold you.
Our lips meet and our hearts too.  With a thrill so sublime.
Those cool and limpid green eyes.  A pool where in my love lies,
So deep that in my searching, For happiness, I fear.
That they will ever haunt me.  All through my life they'll taunt me.
But will they ever want me, green eyes?   Make my dreams come true.
