Come Away, My Love

Come away my love, from streets
where mankind eyes divides
and show windows reflect our difference
in the shelter of my faithful room; rest
There safe from opinions, being behind.
Myself i can see only you.
And in my dark eyes your grey will dissolve.

    “Come Away My Love” by Joseph Kariuki

    Come away my love, from streets
    Where unkind eyes divide
    And shop windows reflect our difference

    In the shelter of my faithful room rest

    There, safe from opinions, being behind
    Myself, I can see only you;
    And in my dark eyes your grey
    Will dissolve.

    The candlelight throws
    Two dark shadows on the wall
    Which merge into one as I close beside you.

    When at last the lights are out,
    And I feel your hand on mine,
    Two human breaths join in one,
    And the piano weaves
    Its unchallenged harmony.
