As the sun rises for horizon's journey
I, too, rise by the silent pleasure
of your face, my lovely wife
Because your beauty lives beyond
the frail confines of your skin
And your eternal youth
soars as high as your spirit is free
You are not my captive
though in captivity my heart belongs
It is only by covenant
that i possess you,
by the simple words 'I do'
Thus, I possess you the way my body
owns my heart...
which sustains my very life
And i possess you the way my mind
possesses my tongue...
Who without would wither away
Or as my heart belongs to love
by which i say: 'I do'
So who belongs to who? I do...
