Tu es venue Gyla, tu as bien fait, comme j'avais envie de toi

Language: French (Français)

Tu es venue Gyla. Tu as bien fait. Comme j'avais envie de toi.
Tu as fait flamber mon cœur qui se consumait de désir
Tu as fait flamber mon cœur.
Sois bénie, sois bénie, sois bénie, plusieurs fois.
Autant de fois qu'il y eut de jours pour nous séparer
Gongyla, Gongyla, tu es venue, tu es venue.
Puisse cette nuit me durer autant que deux nuits entières.
Il me semble miroir du soleil ou de la lune ton beau visage
Quand tu es là près de moi.
Profondément caressée, Gongyla, j'offre à ta beauté comme en
sacrifice, toute ma beauté.
Oh, Gyla, oh Gyla, je t'adore.

Gentle Reminder
This is a personal project that I began in 1995. I receive no salary for my full-time work on it, and aside from ad revenue and copyright fees, the Archive was supported financially last year by about 0.03% of our visitors. So if you found the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
