What is hidden from our sight may be the most beautiful of all.
Song of Songs 1:2-8
reinterpreted by Deborah
The Soul and her Lover
Kiss me full on the lips, like lovers reunited after a long separation! For your love is better than wine: restoring my strength, delighting my heart, making me forget my sorrows; healing every hurt.
Call me to you, don’t delay! And there we will celebrate; for in your presence there is the fullness of joy. We will celebrate without ceasing. For your love is greater than all others.
Your eyes cannot yet behold me, O most beautiful dancer, but I have cherished you from your conception; you are more precious to me than jewels, your love is sweeter than honey.
Tell me, you whom my soul loves, where can I meet you, how can I find you? For I have lost the way, though I seek you, night and day.
O fairest beloved, gaze into the darkness and there you will find me, in the depths I will embrace you; do not fear the shadows, for I shall be with you; there is nowhere you can go that I will not be.
inspired by the first verses of the Song of Songs
