Memory, Karin Boye

6002fhion5fred

Quietly I want to thank my fate:
never shall I be completely without you.
As a pearl grows in an oyster,
so inside me
your dewy essence sweetly grows.
I finally one day I have forgotten you
-then will you be blood of my blood,
then will you and I be one –
it is in the power of the gods.
