To be with you is

To be bathed in light is

To eat ambrosia is

To drink from clear springs is

To sniff the earthy smell of the first rains is

To sniff the earthy smell of the first rains is

To feel the first warning chill of the Harmattan winds is

To stand in that indistinguishable line in the rainbow

Where Indigo melds into violet is

To snuff out a candle and follow the smoke                                                                     Whose trail is the scribbling of wonders unknown is

To hover in the timeless instance between tick and tock
Where one second greets the next is

To stand on a hair and straddle the line
Where love is hate and war is peace is

To know the fragility and moment of that moment
Where life becomes death and makes way for another birth

To be with you is to know the futility of fear
And the wonder that is a pure and simple love
