All Night Long

All night long my hands were burning,
Dreaming of you and your beautiful hair.
All night long, tossing and turning,
Turning, and yearning to find you there.

All night long your name I’ve spoken,
Calling your calm eyes into my view.
All night long, beaten and broken,
Oh! not one of my wants came true.

All night long you lay beyond me,
All night long with your lips so sweet;
And never a kiss to catch and wake me,
And never a touch of your love-tap feet.

All night long my arms were empty—-
Oh, how I wanted to have you there!
Holding, snuggling, you and your body,
Clasping your heartbeats, breathing your hair.
