The Contemporary Of Love
 
I was in love with you since the time I was slave
And had to carry water from the banks of the Nile
Pouring it into your clay pot;
I was in love with you since the time when I was queen,
And you would knock the terrible bull down at the circus
Then bow your head down before me;
I was in love with you since the time
When you were a pagan god
And wine and blood would mix into our pagan love,
I was in love with you since the time
When you were a crusader
Our love of Jesus would bless our love
And make us follow it;
I bring love to you from the depth of centuries
For I simply was born with love
And you must mix with the eternity of love
Then rise from the centuries being forever new.
 
 
 
***
 
There was also a rain
before the Great Flood as well,
when the sky bitterly cried for the Earth…
Could that be the reason why
my heart saddens
each time it’s raining?
