I WOULD LIVE IN YOUR LOVE

I WOULD live in your love as the sea-grasses live in the sea.
Borne up by each wave as it passes, drawn down by each wave that recedes;
I would empty my soul of the dreams that have gathered in me,
I would beat with your heart as it beats, I would follow your soul as it leads.
