Ours,ours,ours is love at first sight, Near a well,as I brood on where to spend the night. We hugged and kissed as it was right, An exile,I went home with you with a future bright. Like a fisherman's net,your love caught my heart. Like a cowboy,you submitted your head to be under my hat. Your love ravished my heard on my mat, That a perfect service was rendered for a perfect love from my perfect heart. For you,for you,for you alone, My seven years service-three of such- although I took not a loan. For you alone,I serve alone, These years are like few days because I love you alone. As I stole away,away,away with all I have, You stole your father's idols, I did not know this,my love. Laban accused me and I rained curses on that thief. Rachel,I never know that you love me but for my God you had no love. You become a loss, a loss indeed, a permanent loss, When on second child birth, you breath your last. You left me alone to sing this song of loss: "O Rachel my wife! O Rachel my wife,my wife! The beauty of my life is gone! How the great lover had fallen! And weapons of love perished!"
