My love is secret and it must be so,
I cannot say aloud I love you dear.
Too many people hurt were they to know.
This silence is a burden I must bear.

I cannot say aloud I love you dear.
My hands imagine they enfold your face.
This silence is a burden I must bear,
for when I close my eyes I’m seeing you.

My hands imagine they enfold your face.
My dreams are troubled by a deep desire,
for when I close my eyes I’m seeing you,
no earth or water can subdue the fire.

My dreams are troubled by a deep desire,
which cannot any longer live by stealth.
No earth or water can subdue the fire.
At the next full-moon I will declare myself.
