Your love permeates the atmosphere with fragrant perfume as blankets of flowers open to the suns first morning rays.
Your loving kindness is overwhelmingly irresistible and I run into its alluring song. Nothing satisfies my soul and fills it with such joy as Your love for me. It is extravagant, beautiful, and forever!
