LOVE & I

Fierce love caught me by my sleeve
I pondered on it in my sleep-
and it grew a shell that covered my shamed skin

Silent love gave me a voice to sing
I sang hymns with the holy birds of spring-
Indulging the ruler of realms

Suffering love drowned my every fear
I went and sought bounty in the enemie's midst-
and my arms were free, for treasures came out following me

Pure love cleansed my blood of sin
I dreamt of an ever warm sun once that year-
and I poured my minds' war into the cold sea

My chest now swells with gladness
Seeing that great affection extended its reach to cover me
To save me from eternal ending
