Because the steady drops have no water

To quench this aching fire

I prefer to be without.

 

Because they have always held it against me

This weakness for you

I prefer to be distant.

Because the space between us is happy

No matter what the earth does to the sea

I prefer to wait.

 

Because no one can whip and destroy

Stretches of love that winds blow

I prefer to pray.
