Your love is deep, as deep as mine;
I recognize myself in you.
Ocean tide to ocean tide
Could never crash in joy so true.
From depths below our love does swirl,
In-gathers strength in upward flow,
Till waterspouts, like flags, unfurl,
To clasp in one their foamy show!
Faint men at sea astounded are
To see such strength of love so strong,
And they steer back to be more far,
So love won’t stun them with its song.
But we fear not our passion true;
Love’s greatness, it is pure and right.
You live in me, l live in you,
And stormy love is joyous light!
