Rhyme Scheme: AA BB CC DD EE FF GG HH II JJ

Kiss me sweetheart One by oneA
Swift and sure the moments runA
-
Soon too soon for you and meB
Gone for aye the day will beB
-
Do not let time cheat us thenC
Kiss me often and againC
-
Every time a moment slipsD
Let us count it on our lipsD
-
While we're kissing strife and painE
Cannot come between us twainE
-
If we pause too long a spaceF
Who can tell what may take placeF
-
You may pout and I may scoldG
Souls be sundered hearts grow coldG
-
Death may come and love take wingsH
Oh a thousand cruel thingsH
-
May creep in to spoil the dayI
If we throw the time awayI
-
Let us time the cheater cheatJ
Kiss me darling kiss me sweetJ
