You are my heart…

You are my heart, my hope, my help 
The passion that is me 
The whole of which I am a part 
My peace  my ecstasy 

You are my future  present  past 
My ship  my sail  my ocean 
The wind that brings me home again 
The home for every motion 

You live within me  yet I am
Without you all alone 
With you I am full of light
Without you I am stone 

Is this foolish? Yes  perhaps 
But also it is true 
I think of life as something I
Can spend with only you 

Ah  my love  Love longs for such
Sweet celebrants as this 
Love is a burden ‘n a joy 
Slavery ‘n bliss 

This day of love come love with me 
Come sing with me my song 
Come be my Valentine  ‘n I
Will love you my life long, my love ?
Will love you my life long?
You are my heart…!
