Adore me, caress me
Touch me inwardly with love so gently.
Let me die the death of ecstasy
My pain be a moulting.
Wash my eyes with tears of love.
Let the rivers of sweetness flow
Break my heart into a million pieces,
All of which shine like the sun.
Free me from torture and pain
My throat drunk with song
And the sobbing of long lost love
Now eternally returned and whole.
Look upon me with eyes of wonder
Humour, compassion
Unspeakable tenderness
Let me not die for want of you
