I love you as a flower loves sunlight,
As a lark loves the broad sweep of sky,
I love you, I will 'til I die.

I love you as a farmer loves green things,
As a seafarer welcomes the spray,
As sufferers look to the day.

Then again, you know I go to you gladly,
Rapture is your name and mine is the same,

O my beloved...

I love you as you are and you will be,
With delight that embroiders my days, with joy in your ways,
Because you are mine and you love me as I love you.

This is not the first sweet blossom of April,
Nor the burning red, red rose of July,
This is forever...

I love you and I love to be near you.
This is clearly the love of a life,
The love of a husband and wife.
