You are to me a very special sun…

You are to me a very special sun

That shines upon a world few ever see,

A world I’m shy to show to everyone,

That hides its urgent truth from even me.

Without your light it is a world of darkness;

Its heaven and its hell lie fast asleep.

With you as sole and sympathetic witness,

The words come forth from out my vasty deep.

And so I cannot be myself without you;

No one is whole without some loving friend.

There is a quiet joy in me about you

That lets me say what I need not defend.

Long may we serve each other to give light

To all the loveliness that haunts the night.
