you, the one that I desire 
fuel, thrown on a white hot fire 
burning, slowly higher and higher 
erasing, all those that were prior 

you, a light that shines on me 
a  sea, that flows upon my beach 
into shadows, far in you reach 
showing, all that we can be 

you, the one that holds me close 
hiding, things I want to know 
flickering, brightly the candle glows 
wax, forms thick, and pools below 

you, ease my mind, sooth the pains 
losing, ground with what I gain 
sun, shining after the monsoon rain 
you remain—you remain
