My intended beloved, oh man of my longing
How is it that these things come between you and me?
I lie next to your warmth, oh so ready to imbibe
Til the horror of illness keeps me far, far away once more.
Albeit evil it must be: a test for my weary, so weary heart
You know my lord and my Lord that I do shake with grief so!
Perhaps just for a time, please wait for me love
I shall return soon when illness has gone one day, I promise, I do.
Until then know that you are the one for whom that my heart sings
The one who loves me so, beyond that which I can even wanton,
My knight in shining aluminum, we jest, but you are indeed more
And know me well, I love you too . . . this is all I need to know to live.
Our Jesus is out in front of us two leading us on
When darkness comes, oh here it is again, we shall not be moved;
Hold me as you are able or as my frame lets you in
Forever in my heart you know you will for always be with me.
