My love is like a shining stone
Of polished chalcedony;
With hue of sea and sky combined,
It glows in hope and humour.
My love is like a song begun
When we were young and merry;
It fills me with the thrill of spring
As winter lies around me.
My love is like a silent night
Of warm and welcome comfort;
When life is full of too much strife,
It heals the heart that hungers.
