On the East Side of the Garden of Eden


On the East Side of the Garden of Eden


More beautiful than a blossoming rose

your kiss long and intoxicating

it has me swirling around

like crimson full-bodied wine in your glass.


More sublime than ether

your breath caressing my lips

So tender and affectionate, 

I'm blessed with love divine.


Your fingertips combing through my locks

so loving and sweet

like a light feather from a Cherub

on the East side of the Garden of Eden
