Treasure Island

Frank Bana


Come closer to me


Come closer to me, dearest love,
To secret homes where we belong
Let my embrace be all your world
Our whispers its most perfect song
 
Discovered as a woman, man
In unity by four hands bound
Joined in knowing timeless love
The silence of harmonious sound
 
Make me completed of your love
And I will bring to you my soul
Ecstatic of our myths and tales
The stories that our bodies tell
 
How profoundly do I find
The essence of your being now
Adoring all your womanhood
This man in me is offered up
 
To call across the spaces wide
Not to disturb the silent night
But yield to elemental love
The stillness that we reach tonight

I join with you beyond the hills
Your flashing smile is all I see
Where I kiss your desert eyes
And where your soul makes love to me.

They are all gone into the world of light!
And I alone sit ling'ring here;
Their very memory is fair and bright,
And my sad thoughts doth clear.
