I love you as a valley loves
The river through its fields,
Or as a note upon a page
The music that it yields.

I need you as the moon requires
The sun to make it shine,
Or as a soul in search of faith
Is rescued by some sign.

You are as much a part of me
As meadows are of Earth,
Or as a song is of a heart,
Replenishing its worth.

I love you as a hawk loves air,
Or a sailor loves the sea,
Or as a strong wave seeks the sand,
But ah! do you love me?
