A Journey, I for long, longed for
I didn’t see you coming, yet, when you came, I embraced you with all I have
In return, you consumed me and communed with my soul intricately
You awakened my soul and caused it to reach for more
You planted an unquenchable fire in our hearts and brought bliss to our souls
and peace to our longing hearts
Now, my strength returns and I feel the vigour of my loins, the full weight of desire
I can move mountains and cast them as pebbles
I have conquered all the conquerable and courage has enveloped me
At last, the conqueror is conquered
Take me home to your sanctuary
Let me put my head down on your laps and savour the incense of bliss
Though I come and come, don’t let me go
Don’t wake me up
It’s a journey, I for long, longed for.
