I have some words, too, but my copy and paste tool can't contain every word found in the online dictionary....
Anything can be confused or misread, it happens constantly.

If I should die this very moment
I wouldn't fear
For I've never known completeness
Like being here
Wrapped in the warmth of you
Loving every breath of you

And does the statement describe a transient or a constant relation? Some languages have separate verbs for those two cases.
