A Kiss Good Night


Over where the sun has set
The day has not quite ended yet
And again I’ll ask for a good night kiss
The pleasure of your smiling lips

They are so tender and dear to me
And their briefest touch sets me free
From a night of trouble, ill, or woe
Only gladness do they generously sow

So come anew, grant my heart’s desire:
Both soothing balm and purifying fire
