    I'd suggest that the two 'thees' in the last stanza are the same persona? otherwise I'd agree entirely with your interpretation. To me the uncertainty is all in the last verse, where she is questioning herself whether love leads to a mutual withdrawal from the challenges of the world, or to a bliss which is eternity...?
