You are my rhythm.
You come and you go with the moon.
My lunar love.
My tidal stream.
My loyal friend,
why do you hurt me,
why do you hurt me, again?
I embrace our stormy encounter, our deep reunion.
And I will let you go again, kiss you a goodbye.
Like a sanguine sunset.
For you, to rise again.
And like every friend, you do it your own way.
Sometimes you surprise me like gentle rain.
Or roll in with the heavy dark clouds of a thunderstorm.
You are my rebellion inside and I surrender to you.
You connect me
And to all women, past and present.
Our ancient bond. A tribute to our greatest commitment.
And therefore I let you hurt me, my blood sacrifice.
You make me tender. You make me strong.
I honour you.
I am strong. I am woman.
