What We Share

Our relationship is stable; we build on "solid-ground."
My baby is constructive; we share values well found.

Our purpose is compatible; we descry "mates-of-soul."
My baby is resolute; we share a common goal.

Our attraction is mutual, we are just "goo-goo eyed."
My baby is good-looking; we share a doting pride.

Our intrigue is insatiable; we play "dagger-and-cloak."
My baby is a sleuthhound; we share alliance yoke.

Our charity is bountiful; we are "givers-of-care."
My baby is nurturing; we share the teddy bear.

Our ardor is identical; we fit like "hand-in-glove."
My baby is intimate; we share a fervid love.

Our resourcefulness is acute; we are "Solomon-Wise."
My baby is sagacious; we share a prudent prize.

Our manner is gregarious; we are "party-live-wires."
My baby is sociable; we share friendship desires.

Our breathing is in unison, we are "parcel-and-part."
My baby is familiar; we share one beating heart.
