I'm too scared to live out our love, my dear
The image I have of it is so clear,
So pure, so good, so tranquil, divine...
I want to keep that image all mine.
Not lend it to you so that you may
Inadvertently add or take away,
From my delicate weave of perfect joy
This complete union between girl and boy.
What's in my mind is so gentle, fragile
That I can always count on it to smile.
