At night you reveal your tender part
of lips for words too delicate for light
And soft you touch with gentle hands
as if to prevent
a sparrow from flight
Do you think me a child
to be kept always
in our safe cocoon?
Do you find me only room
in the secret places
for treasure hoards —
you hide onboard?
Don’t fear for me, beloved,
and I am strong by your side.
Let me fight the good fight with you;
We have nothing to hide.
