My lover, my lover, my lover,
Oh, what you are to me
Is more than a man could discover
Through all eternity,
Though everything he found was pure as gold.
With riches piled high
In great bank vaults towering
He would not have that soaring wing have I.
And yet you flutter low to lift me as I grow,
Yout spirit in my soul an angel true.
Your song in me is flame
That intensifies my love to ever more
And more my love to show
Till all my life’s desire is for you
A burning fire
That will never, ever, ever let you go!
This divine simplicity
That exists in you and me
Is a truth that comes but rarely unto two.
But it’s here, and we have caught it,
We can cheer for what it’s taught us—
That honesty in loving is a height
Beyond the reach of any but the real,
Who never turn away from their ideal.
You are the one I’ve always wanted,
As you have always wanted me.
We hungered and we panted
And now, self-caught, we’re free!
Free in halo love round you and me.
