Judge not harshly, nor in anger,
For I am but a man in search
Of what I am,
And where I go.
How I love youíll never know.

You know not why I turn away,
Itís not as seems,
Iím well aware
Youíre but inches from my side.

Shall I, deferentially, try
To please in everything I do,
Although harmless
As a painting on the wall?

I must be me, and yet it hurts
To be seen in this sordid light.

Let me but ask
ďDo you love me?Ē
Eternity is then tomorrow.
