I wish that I could take you in like air
I wish that I could take you in like air,
That you with every breath should fill my soul.
Give life to love where once was blank despair,
Give love to life and, with it filled, leave whole.
I long to revel in your salty sea,
To wash away with you in lovers' rain.
That you might seep in every part of me,
And there find home, while breath and life remain.
When we must part, though every step repent -
We have two lives, though I would have one new -
I wear your words as if they were your scent,
And sing that I might bathe myself in you.
I would that I might fill your soul as well.
For in your bliss I would as deeply dwell.
