You are more myself than I am;
that is how I came to you.
For what was I but a mere point;
and now: a skyline infinite!
I was lonely, unspeakably lonely:
and now: a world of two in one!
I was a restless rustle
craving to be redeemed
till I became resurgent in you.
I am now steeped in mystic heritage
born of my bond with you!
I deny no god or divinity
and long to be nothing but you,
for you transcend them all.
