A romantic love song: Love will always win!
Two people are sitting together and drinking wine, one says to the other:
You are as beautiful as the full moon, sitting with you now is better than my entire life. You are tall and strong like a tree and your face is like the light of the morning. Sing for me, one with the most beautiful voice, when you sing the time is best and the space is filled with perfume, then give me the wine until I melt in your beauty and in your heaven.
