Let there be nothing done in darkness that’s
Not done for love, but let us be entwined
Around each other like two sleepy cats—
Purr harmonized with purr, mind matched to mind.
And when we hold our breath to reach the peak
Of Love’s Mount Everest, let the kiss we share
Be strong enough to make our terror weakAnd soft enough to land us safely where
We can begin the climb again, and dive
Into each other till we’re out of breath,
And feed on all our dreams to stay alive
While all the nightmares in us die the death—
Then drink so deeply of each other’s heart
That we’ll be one even when we’re apart.
