I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be,
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea,

You love me, and I find you still,
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be,
Lost as a light is lost in light,

Oh plunge me deep in love – put out,
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.
