Life is in the dark caverns, a sweet blossoming

like a blooming night flower

or the cry of a lonely bird that reaches the evening sky

there is a light here in the depths

there is a peace, a silence that unveils me

reveals my true self to you

and I shine as the stars do, mirrored in the dew

Lightning quivers from edge to edge

and opens up the way for me

in your arms, all surrenders to the thaw

and melts away like a clear, running stream

that always comes back to your ocean

never desiring to return from whence it came
