Because I Love You

You have calmed me, dear, my love.
I am now a flame
Who was once a forest fire.

You loved me, I ceased to rage.
I twist, you hold tight.
Hold me, love, don’t let me go!

I hurt myself with my fire;
Soothe me, love, soothe me.
I only want to be loved.

Even more, I want to love.
Let me love you, dear.
My soul cries, “I have to love!”

That is why I need you, dear.
Because I love you.
