The Two Of Us

Whenever I think of you
I feel closest to eternity,
I exist and you exist
That's all that matters,
My life and your life
Merge and melt into one
Return to where they began,
All our differences disappear,
For us everything is perfectly defined,
There's no battle of the sexes,
There's faith and devotion, passion and freedom,
All the facets of human beings in union,
I have faith in the way we live
As readily as I have faith in nature
So I can look down on the 'world'
And triumph over all its stupidities
We have risen far above it all,
I feel my pain as your pain,
My pleasure as your pleasure,
I trust you as much as I trust myself,
I see my own growth in your growth,
However fast I travel, I will never leave you behind,
I am filled with energy
And you are glowing with youth,
You are a burning flame,
You make me feel younger
And you can always surprise me,
You are a solid rock of reality,
Your kisses moisten me,
Your embraces nourish me,
Your cool limbs
Your curvaceous body
Your glowing skin
The power of life coursing through you
This is all I need for an idyllic life,
You trust me,
You live in me
And this makes you who you are,
We cherish life,
We're always restless
Pushing onwards as far as we can go
Deepening -
Such radiance, such happiness
