Princess Of My Heart (2)

(for Annelize, after A.G. Visser)

If you were the rays of the sun bringing light
and I the darkness that blots out everything to black
we would have met each other at daybreak and sunset,
we would have greeted each other for moments
when the earth turns in its eternal orbit
and you would bring light to my darkness,
if you were the rays of the sun bringing light
and I the darkness that blots out everything to black.

If you were the stretched out ocean
and I the sky that goes up to space
we would have constantly touched each other
and at times I would have made your waters my own,
at times your waves would hit threatening
while my breath draws tracks over your surface,
if you were the stretched out ocean
and I the sky that goes up to space

If you were the spring that explodes in blossoms
and I the summer that comes with maturity
your lustrous glory would sing of my coming
while insects and birds frolic in pollination
we both would draw strength from light, rain and dust,
I would be able to bare your fruit from each pretty flower,
if you were the spring that explodes in blossoms
and I the summer that comes with maturity

but you are my princess that I adore as a woman
and I am a writer of verses, who keeps longing,
if you only knew the depth of my love
you would never be able to forget me
but still my love sneaks into you
and bring meaning and maturity to every desire
but you are my princess that I as a woman
and I am a writer of verses who keeps longing.
