Soft, Tender, Gentle 

Softly, softly, softly 
Touch me here and here and there. 
Tender, tender, tenderly 
Run your fingers through my hair. 
Gently, gently, gently 
Caress my face and ears and eyes. 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
Until I quietly begin to cry. 

Softly, softly, softly 
Lick the salty dew of love. 
Tender, tender, tenderly 
Your skin on mine covering as a glove. 
Gently, gently, gently 
Ease your words into my ear 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
Hold me close and call me dear. 


Softly, softly, softly 
As the sun begins to fade. 
Tender, tender tenderly 
Whisperings of pleasure we have made. 
Gently, gently, gently 
Let your fingers come to rest. 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
Upon my mother earthly breast. 

Softly, softly, softly 
Bring your body close to mine. 
Tender, tender, tenderly 
As our limbs seek to entwine. 
Gently, gently, gently 
Draw me closer, closer still 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
Til I surrender with all my will. 

Softly, softly, softly 
As we allow our souls to meld. 
Tender, tender, tenderly 
No weapons shall we wield. 
Gently, gently, gently 
My soul opens up to yours. 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
In the mist of the outdoors. 

Softly, softly, softly 
Gentle as the rain. 
Tender, tender, tenderly 
Take away my pain. 
Gently, gently, gently 
Heal my yearning and desire 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
Til I blaze with longing fire. 

Softly, softly, softly 
Douse the flame that burns so bright 
Tender, tender, tenderly 
As we slip into the night. 
Gently, gently, gently 
Let me down and let me go. 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
Where it will never ever show. 

Softly, softly, softly 
As the night turns back to day. 
Tender, tender, tenderly 
Only one thing I need to say. 
Gently, gently, gently 
Let me be but who I am. 
Stroke me, stroke me, stroke me 
With promises to see me once again.
