    How you live your life
    Concerns me not, but,
    Strangely, pulls me in.
    What is this curious
    Sickness that stirs me
    For reasons unknown?
    Where you are not,
    I have no wish to be.
    When you shed this life,
    I shall not care if the sky
    Is blue, if birds still sing.
    Why you attract me so,
    I will likely never know.

    I have searched long for that love of all loves,
    But it hastens not, though my winter's arrived

    And leaves me desolate of every hope of warmth,
    Comfort and a prospect of my name's immortality.

    Nor will this elusive love reveal itself in my tiny dreams,
    Allowing, at the very least, a gossamer of muted visions

    That would elevate this worn and bitter man to a level of
    Expanded vistas, kindling within flames of love's illusion ...
