Soul Like The Vastest Sea
Your soul is like the vastest sea
And mine a darting fish:
I lose myself within your love;
I live within your heart.
I breathe your love: it is my air,
My element, my world.
I know no other ambiance;
I have no other dream.
I know there is outside your love
A world of rocks and sand;
And I could live there, too, but oh!
How poor and thin each breath!
How rich my world, how beautiful,
Alive within your love,
Each moment filled with dancing light
Refracted through your eyes!
