Close beside me, you lay, adrift in dreams,
Your visage serene, faint smile does reveal,
Tranquility befitting, love empowered,
To worship our union, shall be no appeal.
You arose like the sun, gift from the stars,
Soft glowing ember conquering my darkness,
Igniting my passion sorely feared too idle,
Soon ablaze, very being aflame, life now a wholeness.
What sovereignty of feeling, did assail my soul
That one such as you would deem me fitting
To share your world, to know your love,
Eternal blessing, my heart forever binding.
