How can I love you
when I know 
that you must someday leave?
My throat already tight,
trying to keep captive
the love that dances inside me
to the rhythm of my heart beat,
a mournful tune
already crying for a love
that has only just begun.

Why should I love you
when I know
that only pain shall come of it?
My eyes that look at you
with desire and compassion
already anticipate 
the tears that threaten
to become a fixture
in my life after you.
