In daylight you're a haunting melody,
More lovely than the world before my eyes.
In darkness you become my symphony,
So much of me, I know no other ties.
So are you nestled with me night and day,
Your missing self transmuted into song,
Or walking close beside me on my way,
Unleashing all the love for which I long.
