meditations on Jenny kissed
Jenny kissed me,
only once,
he said to me,
Now she's gone.

How do I go on?
Every day I wait
remembering that once
my Jenny kissed me
and as she was leaving said,
now I'm going, now I'm gone.

Only once and never more
timidly my Jenny kissed me
touched my lips before goodbye.
Every day I wait and wonder

If life and
love has not missed me
only to pass on, pass on.
Valentines are sent to others
everyone but me.

Yet I never miss the heart card,
oh no, Jenny kissed me
untied my heart and set it free.
