Show me the way


Show me the way, my love,
and I will follow enthusiastically
leaving everything behind me
that is incompatible with your beauty
and the path of your incomparability,
that ever set me straight
by the idealism of your silence
so expressive of a higher truth
than any words or revelation can engender,
which I gladly follow blindly
seeing more and clearer second-sightedly
by trusting your infallible clairvoyance
that as yet did never fail me
but invariably kept me safe on course
to follow you on the condition
so intriguing in its irresistibility
that I would never reach or catch you.
Keep me going, and I shall be happy
and content enough to carry on
as long as you are there to be my love.
