Hello, night, and all it’s loneliness,
Night, and all it’s company.
I shall drink the night in dark blue gulps
I shall drown the feeling of desparity.
For You are here
Though You are far away.
And You are near
But I can’t touch Your face.
Can I say
– with no desire to sacrilege
– with only a tone that whispers tenderly
My Lord is at once gallant and coquette
The boldest Love and the coyest tease.
Oh, how You test my love with separation!
Oh, how I prove unfaithful and untrue…
Yet You, my first, best love and Adoration
Persevere here to draw me hitherto.
