OH SPIRIT OF LOVE
Oh, Spirit of Love!
Why have you chosen to punish me this way?
Why have you taken my love from me?
Why have you smitten my beloved at war,
And sent his piece to me?
Tell me where you’ve taken my beloved
So I may seek him
For I have waited years, for my beloved to return home
To fling my arms in the open air, as I embrace him
I wanted to receive my beloved, with the warmth of my arms
To be smothered, with the kisses of my beloved
But where are those kisses of my beloved?
Where is my passionate lover, death has snatched from me?
His loving care, with sensation
His rare love, which could not be bargained
A fabulous lover, I had valued all my life
His long curly black hair, I loved to bury my face in
His heart have I stolen, and kept only for myself
Bring me back my love, so I may nurse my broken heart in frames
For though I value life
Death fascinates my soul now
Hear my million cries, oh Spirit of Love
And bring my beloved back to me. © lady_b_o_e
