For must love because I live

I'll paint a sun to warm your heart
knowing that we'll never part
I'll draw the years all passing by
So much to learn so much to try

I'll paint my mood in shadow blue
Paint my soul to be with you
I'll stretch your lips in shaded tones
Draw your mouth into my own

For who is there that lives and knows
The secret powers by which you grow
Were knowledge all, what were our needs
To thrill and faint and sweetly bleed?

I'll paint the stars in the evening sky
Draw the light into your eyes
A touch of love, A touch of grace
to softly fall on your moonlight face

If questioning would make us wise
No eyes would ever gaze in eyes
If all our tales were made in speech
No mouths would wander each and each

Were spirits free from mortal mesh
And love not bound in hearts of flesh
No aching chests would yearn to meet
And find their ecstasy complete

I'll trace a hand to wipe your tears
And trace a look to calm your fears
A silhouette of dark and light
To hold each other.. oh so tight

Then seek not, sweet, the ifs and whys
I love you now, until I die
For must love because I live
And life in me is what you give..
