My Love Is Something Separate

Music: Sonata K108.
By Domenico Scarlatti. Performed by
John Sankey.

My love is something separate
From what we say or do.
Though we may have it out with words,
I'm still in love with you.

Just as waves ignore the rocks
On their way to shore,
And keep on coming even if
They see what lies in store,

So I will come, no matter what,
And break, and come again,
And break against your wilderness
Beyond all joy and pain.
