Oneness "We are we"

Twoness "I am I and you are you"

Threeness "I am I and you are you and we are we"

Reunion of two with separate selves and shared covenant.

Romantic illusions&md;We are the Dream. (Your dream? or mine?)

Loss of illusions&md;Where have the flowers gone? (Who am I, who are you?)
