My Love Cocoon

Love flows from my love cocoon
It overflows from me to you
Like a cup that is full and overflowing
My love is overflowing
Like water rushing down the mountains and into the oceans
My love cocoon overflows
My body is full
Filled with the juices of love
Strawberry, cherry, pineapple and grape.
