You And Me

You are my sea—I cannot swim in you
   And not feel humbled by the deep below me.
You are my horse—there’s nothing I can do
    But say a prayer and ride you till you throw me.
You are my sun—my heart could feel your heat
   If you were 90 million miles away.
You are my moon—and every night we meet,
   You show a different face from yesterday.
You are my planet, I your satellite—
   And when I orbit you, that’s my caress.
You are my stars—in the cold dead of night,
   You tell me there is life in emptiness.
      You are my universe—and all I see
      Is love in you—love to infinity.
