A young man stands
finger pointing long.
An arrow towards my gaze both piercing.
has become an accuser, saying;
“You, you have me here.”
No mother’s cheek to kiss!
Sweethearts have become embittered wives
who now blame husbands
for not being a lover like I.
No sister, to accompany me
or advise with life’s concerns.
release your burden
for this man still wishes to be you.
