And I Love You

The leaves of autumn fall, and I love you,
White beaches of Whitby, matching white thighs of earthly surrender,
Happy flowers from mountains to drown you in affections carved by my love,
And I love you.

Newly born nourishment grows in your soul,
Gothic hotels sleeping patient whispers in the lonely night,
And the wind waving deep breaths in it's hands,
And I love you.

My garment of kisses dividing your sweet dreams,
My parallel body yields in your arms,
Morning birds peck at the last stars,
For this night will never end.

And in you lies the illusion of eternity,
A glimpse of forever, a winter horizon,
A sweet melody sung by birds sleeping in your soul,
Morning dew falls on you, my morning rose,
And I love you.

Bound by fresh love, we will gather people like an old road,
Your face, fresh like new stars,
Now everyone will be in love with night,
For you are a subtle visitor, playing with the light of the universe,
You are like nobody, since I love you.
