When hast thou seen, as meant for only thee,
Such eyes as widen gaily at thy sight?
And at thy voice a face that ever bright
Hath lit as though thy soul hath set it free.
And hast thou heard a voice so peacefully
Conformed, as though it found a place to light
As warmly and as permanently might
A thing as claimed its perfect place so be?
Or hast thou not this wonder ever seen?
And hast thou not this perfect moment felt?
Nor felt thine own eyes widen, as for thee
Delighted by thine own, that face hath been?
Hast not thou love, as hath my love for mee?
Hast not thine heart within perfection dwelt?
Sublime images. Each time I read this I like it more.
I actually get to live with you. Every day.
I experience this much sublimity whenever I see you, hear your voice or even think about you.
Your words humble me, beloved. This is a sublime piece of work and a beautiful sentiment. Even after all these years I am amazed that I get to live with you every day.
You are probably tired of hearing this repeated, My Sweetest Love, but I do mean every word.
