I will love you




I will love you


Before I see another day,
before tide or moon
                               steal time away,
I will love you.

Before I know another breath,
before living blood
                        calls life from death,
I will love you.

Before that sweet taste of wine
has passed by lip
                           to tongue of mine,
I will love you.

Before this bread is broken
and crumb from crumb
becomes loves token
I will love you.
