I Can Never, Never Hate You

The verb "hate" can never be
My darling, in my vocabulary
I can only love you night and day
I can only think of you all day long
I can only dream of you and I long
For your presence at midday
When the bells are ringing
When the birds are singing
Gleefully on the branches
Near the sumptuous ranches
I can simply love you, my dear
Please come now, over here

Over here, much closer

Over there, much nearer.
