Your beauty is soft but unyielding,
Pierces through the heart softly;
Your touch is gentle like petals,
Grazing my skin, evoking tingles.
Leaving my heart in tangles,
Wanting you close, so near to me;
But fearing the prick of the thorns,
Your beautiful smile conceals.
And your voice seduces me so,
Like music, like rustling of leaves,
But you're just a flower, le fleur -
Fading slowly away by the hour....
