With fiery eyes you read the diary of his heart,
And you hungrily devour each line part by part
As you desire to know him perfectly
Just as he knows you so very wholly,
So, too, you scrutinize each letter
To better understand the Beloved,
Even while some mock you
While others stand in shock,
But you dismiss blame and shame cast upon you
And remain true to your task as you bask in love
His soul is an opened book
And so you anxiously look
You read every line
Gaze upon each sign
You burn to learn your Beloved and discern his ways
As days pass into nights that give way to bright light
In sight of the one to whom you have joined yourself
In the union of such sweet communion forevermore
