When my awareness of life is one
as chills me: when it is not loneliness,
but the company of things in response
to which I realise I am alone -
then I cry to You, Who art within me!
Impassioned, I pull towards You - away
from these local attachments that would sway
and bind my will - I do not know these things!
I know only You, and I feel fulfilled!
Fears for the future, too, are robbed of their
lure: they are but abstractions, whatever
their logic, and they are quite without sense:
for I am always with You, and we live
as one: if now fulfilled, then forever!
