I stand on the edge, eyes closed;
Still the image is before me.
The constellation of your face
Lingers among the stars,
Moonlight dances on ocean waves,
Lightning faints on the horizon.
You are absent and present;
You are far away; you are near
Look for me, my love;
Close your eyes,
Feel with your heart;
There will you find me.
Raise your hand into the breeze,
Feel my heart beat against the wind;
It beats for you alone.
The air around me becomes your fragrance,
The flowers of Eden are inhaled;
You are breath, my lifeís breath.
My purest thoughts feel you;
My body longs and aches for you.
You share the space of my soul
Where God alone has spoken;
Two shall become one,
Loveís mystery revealed in us.
I rest in the twilight;
Dreams reach for you.
Their pleas stir my slumber;
How long can we endure?
My flesh rises in rebellion;
My soul weeps;
My spirit whispers, soon, soon.
I am broken.
The farther I am from you,
My heart struggles to be free
To return to its owner, you;
My heart is not my own.
I rise before the sun;
Standing on the edge, I wait.
The horizon parts from the darkness;
The light floods my face.
I close my eyes and you are here;
Arms reach for you,
My heart is not fooled.
My soul begs, donít stop dreaming.
But the day calls its demand;
I feel you slip away from me.
Soon I will come to you, my love,
You are far away; you are near.
