Dr. Antony Theodore Poems
If You Die Before Me
If you die before me
I would jump down into your grave
and hug you so innocently
that angels will become jealous.
I shall kiss you.
So intimately shall I kiss you
that your breath becomes mine.
In one breath of love shall
we merge into hugs of true joy.
Your heart shall beat
in rhythms unheard
like the drums of the desert
and the wild forest in the night.
You shall murmur in my ears:
'Oh press me to your chest;
Tear open your chest,
Make way for me
to enter into your loving heart
that beats only for me in resounding ...
Who can still the pain of my heart,
who can quench the thirst of my soul?
The lamp of desire burns eternally.
The Eternal alone
can touch the core, in my depths
and fill me
with the delight of fulfilment.
