I was a shooting star, 
a frigid lump of ice and stone, 
floating by in the endless universe

Until I met you, oh my glorious sunshine
And I blaze and come to you
Brilliant like the morningstar

In the midst of darkness
Came a voice
Yours calling me
Unto your paradise

I saw not then
For I am too long forlorn
Frozen and frigid, gloomy and cold

Unlike the warmth of your embrace
Upon my skin, flesh, and bones
And your passionate lips upon mine

Through the universe
I soar across the gloom and silence
Abandoned and forlorn

Searching for hope
For light, for salvation
Until you met me,
Oh thy caressing dawn

We are one, you and I
A comet soaring without destination
Trailing wisps of vapor, like mine tears
Seperated from you, for eons, forever

To evermore rejoin
In an embrace of love and overwhelming desire
Never parted, never again
My Love...
