Hold me close and let me thaw in your soft embrace,
the long desert years have hardened me like a rock.
Look at me and smile for me with your sparkling eyes,
the haughty sun has grown too rude and insolent.
Take my hand and let me drown in your sea of love,
then let us, from the briny depth, emerge as one.
