Love, dearest Love, I know you're next to me,
So fair of face. You may
Change your name, age, your heart, the way
You speak... But your face cannot faithless be.
Those eyes that light your face, Love, next to me,
Shine, patient as the stars. If you but nod,
Ifear no night, vast seas, bleak isles.. For you,
I've come, Love, from afar, perhaps. Where too
Do we go now, we two? Good God,
Who knows? How long have you been searching now
To find my shadow, vanished in thin air?
When did I lose you, Love? In what life? Where?
And how can heaven dare to undo us now?
