Three letters, one word

Three letters, one word

One word, one syllable,
Joy.
Two bodies, two souls,
Joy.

Three letters, a burning flame,
Joy.
Four lips, one kiss,
Joy.

Five fingers laced in five more,
Joy.
Six eyes, only two I search for,
Joy.

Seven Wonders, none as wondrous as you,
Joy.
Eight planets, only one where I can find you,
Joy.

Nine angels, yet only you can bring heaven to me,
Joy.
Ten seconds. That’s all it takes to fall in love with you,
Joy.
