Since Love Embraced Me
What have I become since love embraced me?
More an ocean than a reservoir,
A chalice that is lifted, or a key
That full unfastens the sweet mystery you are.
How steep the moon climbs silent in the sky,
Yet neither distance nor the endless sweep of space
Shall wrest you from my heart or nullify
The nectar of the dawn that is your face.
We run in laughter down the narrow trail
While holding hands, as sunlight, shedding gold
Upon the grass, a secret realm unveils
In which we shall not languish or grow old,
But live forever in the land above
Within each other’s arms, contented and in love.
