You Show Your Face

You show your face and fill my eyes with tears 
That fall like gemstones as my heart does quake
With humble thanks that you have lost your fears
And let your visage grace, 'tis for my sake.

No more must I with bated breath request
That you reveal your beauty to my sight,
You simply filled my thirst and I was blessed
Because I now am quenched with pure delight.

I never more shall feel that I have lost
The earnest wish that I have ever dreamed
To look into your soul and know the cost
That we must pay for love will be redeemed.

The darkness fed the dread it could conceal, 
But know this truth, in hiding we reveal.
