There is the pain
It is there all the while
Yet see how I smile
That you might ask
How am I keeping

Yes, it is true
It does keep me
From sleeping
Yet see how I am lightened
By your offer of tea

No, the despair
Does not quite
Turn to my weeping
Instead, I write
On matters of love

I try to repair
Yes simply as if
I am reaping
To furnish with light
The missives of love

There is the pain
As if climbing the stile
Yet just see how I smile
That you ask, sympathetically
How it is that I am needing
