You are my only friend

Captain, my Captain,
You are my Friend, my only Friend.
Therefore, I depend on You for everything.
I depend on You
For the fulfilment of my human desire-life.
I depend on You
For the fulfilment of my divine
aspiration-heart.
Captain, my Captain,
Am I Your friend?
"My sweet child,
You definitely are."
Captain, my Captain,
If so, do You ever depend on me
For anything?
"My sweet child,
I depend on you only for one thing.
I sleeplessly depend on
Your heart's breathless oneness-love."
