I did me well

I did me well to love you as I did;
The light of love so deeply in me hid
It lay forgot, or else but faintly shown,
And faded out had I left you alone.
You roused the slumb’ring depths in me to rise,
Then waked me to your sun-uplifted eyes.
There, both mind and spirit caught your waving height,
Fought nearer, clasping sureness by the hand,
To top this peak on which alone we stand.
Together, yea, together we’re so right;
Together, side by side, in love so true
You are my dream, and I the dream of you,
Yet steel real, as rocks reflecting sun,
With blazed lips we smile for life well done.
