You are to me as wild honey.
The thought of you fills my mind
with such sweet singing
I fear my heart will burst with the wonder of it.
You are to me as a quiet stream
flowing softly to the center of my being;
with a cool and quiet reflection
of my deepest yearnings toward heaven.
You are to me as earth.
You cradle my days in the gentle strength of your arms
there renewing and upholding my spirit,
until it brings forth life.
Let me be to you as sky.
Let me cover your world with sunshine
and refresh your heart with the gentle showers
of my love.
And, when our days are accomplished,
Let us be to one another as fire,
having refined and purified our spirits
in the heat of our love
until they rise to meet their Author and Sustainer!
