My Lover Bathes Me in His Precious Light
|Music: Fugue in F Minor.
By Dimitri Shostakovich. Sequenced by J. Marques.
|My lover bathes me in his precious light.
I am the Earth to his all-giving sun.
His needs are burned away in serving mine,
Consumed in the production of his love.
In my awe I'm sometimes forced to wonder:
Still, the sun requires no return.
