Let me worship at your altar
While you’re worshipping at mine.
We will share a sweet communion
Tasting flesh and sipping wine.
In my arms a fine Adonis
In your arms an Aphrodite
God and goddess joined together
Taking of the sacred rite.
In this holy place together
Knowing mystic unity;
Priest and priestess to each other,
We are serving ecstasy.
We will hold this reality:
Worshipping in love as one.
When life’s details come together,
Let this moment overcome.
The above song lyric was written for Brian, a man I dated for 8 months, prior to his sudden and unexpected death 22 years ago at the age of 45.
