“Sweet red wine”
Sweet red wine
It was early fall and the sweet new wines of Germany came out.
They are cheap and tasty and it was a beautiful late summer day.
The youth of the city of Boeblingen surrounded the lake drinking the wine and listening to music.
I was with my Scottish beauty.
She was so beautiful and
she held me so tightly.
We found a peace in a sweet love only
two innocent in heart can understood.
We drank the sweet red wine and
I asked her to marry me.
We sealed our two lives together,
with sweet and tender kisses.
Her sweet lips tasted of sweet red wine.
We traveled to Scotland together and
we made promises of forever to the Ivory Cliffs of Dover.
I could kiss and love my lady till we fell together in a happiness no-one
She promised to love me forever and a day.
I told her. She would be my only sweet dream I can hold on to.
Somehow foolishness and bad timing allow us to separate.
I did not forget my promise and
her kind memory is tattoos on my heart.
For after we separated.
I could not love anyone else.
I wished everyday to return to the lake.
Drink sweet red wine and
wrap my arms around her.
Kiss her sweet lips and
have her warm body near.
For I cannot forget her beautiful face.
I have written a thousand words of love.
Never gave any woman what we shared and understood.
I whispered to the wind.
I prayed to the moon and the stars.
My yearning to taste sweet red wine.
Dance by the Boeblingen lake with my love.
Kiss and hold her near.
Whisper thank you for her kindness and love for a foolish man.
I would not release her from my life.
