I am devoting my whole life to you (Envelope couplet sestets)


I am devoting my whole life to you,
days that are merry and some that are blue,
some divine intervention made us meet,
to me you will always be very sweet
with your eyes glittering in perfect hue,
I am devoting my whole life to you,

I am devoting my whole life to you,
of the future I do not have a clue,
here and now our feelings are very strong
while only together we do belong,
and I want to stick to you like strong glue,
I am devoting my whole life to you,

I am devoting my whole life to you,
until my last days are gone and are through
I am giving my body, soul and heart
and wish never again from you to part
every day your life I want to pursue,
I am devoting my whole life to you.

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
