When the sisters love and loneliness In the latter part of my life In their foolishness called upon me once more I know them in depth Pondering my decision with regret Reluctantly with sadness My heart an open portal I closed the door
Chastise me freely for my disbelief Or reproach me for my coldness You may speak of devotion And fluttering white doves I scoff at its significance But pray refrain if you will From speaking the word love
I have encountered these emotions in my younger years Engaged them in open battle Not once But twice before
Dangerous adversaries they are And it is very tempting To once again confront them in the arena of war But in this instance, Laying down my sword I must respectfully decline And closed the door
