"Morning Star/Evening Star" as written by and Dory Langdon Previn....
when i was a child
you know how children are
i wanted to be
like the morning star
morning is so innocent
trusting and fair
with mother love and angels
reflected on your hair
oh morning star
how warm you are
let me be like you

as i grew up
the morning star
faded into space
then i saw the evening star
standing in its place
i tried to turn away
terrified to find
father love and demons
entangled in my mind
but
despite myself
i saw this other me
oh evening star
how cold you are
it's you
i've come to be

but you see that
once i thought them different
as the moon and sun
but now
but now i know the morning star
and the evening star
are one

mortal immortal
icicle and flame
feminine and masculine
and i
i am the same

so i hereby
take myself
my soul doth take my heart
to honor love and cherish
till death do us part
i will i will
accept myself
with hope and fear and wonder
and what i have joined together
let no one put asunder
let no one put asunder
