I cannot give today.

I’m sorry my love.
I cannot give today.
For today I give to myself.
Or myself will not be mine.

For if my cup has none,
There is nothing I can give.
But if my cup overflows,
Then to you, they all will go.

My love comes from the soul.
Then the soul tends to my mind.
My mind cares for the heart.
Then my heart belongs to you.

So if I give today,
My mind and soul will perish.
And if we part today,
Then my heart will long for you.

So forgive me, my dear.
For today is not for us.
It won’t take long, I promise.
I’ll be back, and I’ll be yours.
