Where you are that’s where I want to be
And through your eyes are all the things I want to see
In the night you are my dreams
You’re everything to me

You’re the love
Of my life
And the breath
In my prayers
Take my hand
Lead me there
What I need is you here

I can’t forget the taste of your mouth
From your lips, the heavens pour out
I can’t forget when we are one
You alone and I am free

Everyday, every night
You alone, are the love of my life

Everyday, every night
You, alone, are the love of my life

We go dancing in the moonlight
With the starlight in your eyes
We go dancing ’til the sunlight
You and me, we’re gonna
Dance, dance, dance

….when you love you should not say, “god is in my heart,” but rather, “i am in the heart of god.” and think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

love has no other desire but to fulfil itself. but if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires: to melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. to know the pain of too much tenderness. to be wounded by your own understanding of love; and to bleed willingly and joyfully. to wake at the dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving; to rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy; to return home at eventide with gratitude; and then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

Love, from the Prophet by Kahlil Gibran
