Fire and Water

Love, you are like hot fire,
The flames of your love
Envelope me and surround me,
A heat that is never extinguished
A light that never burns out,
A passion that is never quenched.
Your love suffocates me
With thick black smoke
And fills my inmost being.

Love, you are like water,
Liquid from a cool glass
Striking my parched throat
And refreshing my heart,
Resurrecting my soul
From the dying dehydration
Of this world.
Your love purifies me
And makes me new.

Love, you are the hot fire,
Consuming everything I am
And you are also still water
Cooling and purifying
My very soul.
