A gentle breeze blows my hair
That caress my face like your fingers bare
A heart so cold like a winter that you’ve known
Is now full of warmth to which I was unknown

This summer fills me up with life
With us becoming a man and wife
The love that blooms in loving embrace
This warmth of summer, winter cannot replace!

Your whispers near ear and kisses like feathers
Are more exciting than sunsets we watch together  
Like sunflowers facing sun, living the aura it surrounds
My face glows beetroot, with your love it’s crowned!

Holding hands we walk on shore,
Reminded me, when you proposed on Moore
A smile that appears like a radiant sun,
Melts away my worries one by one

My eyes flutter and stomach catch butterflies
In your arms, overlookin’ the eyes of passerby’s
You kiss me underneath the starry night
This silent promise to me is A Summer’s Delight!
