To absorb this life single
Is fine, but not quite the wine
That shines, unless mingled with you.
Alone, our bodies cannot sing –
Or if they do, it is a muffled
Tune, but your bright song is a boon.
Days once monochrome dance into
Light, bathed in natural affection;
Alchemy makes us more than
What we otherwise would be.
For this, I pray these words may ring,
Hear the colour of love sing and sing.
