Seal Me

Marlborough Sounds, New Zealand

Seal me in your heart.
Seal me in your heart oh
lover of my soul. 

Prise me open to you,
and to you alone,
because your love for me
is to the death,
and your jealousy,
strong as fire.

My only answer
to such a love
is to fall upon my knees.
Captivated by a love
that will not let me go,
pledged fast to me.

And all that you ask,
in return,
is that you are my one desire.
Above all, who may draw me
from your feet,
above all the world’s allure.

Oh seal me fast,
tied to your side,
for I’m inclined to wander.
Though I know there’s no-one
who can touch the spirit,
beyond heart and soul.

But for you.
But for you, my God.
My love, my desire, my all.
