Visions to behold # 3
When I am oldWhen I am old and grey one day
they'll ask me why I lived this way;
Why all my life was spent alone,
no other let into my home.
They'll ask why, for so many years,
I let no other get so near;
Why no companion held me close,
and why a lonely path I chose.
They'll want to know so many things
about the life to which I cling
like why I never sought the balm
of womanhood held in my arms:
they'll question what it was that made
me far from all temptations stray.
For they don't see I found in you
the only heart I would pursue,
and all the others can't compare
when held against a one so fair.
For, through the years, I shall stay true
to all that holds me so ensnared,
And, when I'm old and grey, my friend,
I'll think of you until the end.

such as can't be voiced in song,
to be cast out in favour of
another life, that knows no love.
I must have done some awful thing,
the like of which the Devil sings,
to be abandoned in this way
and left to wrack & disarray.
I must be made of deepest sin,
the very worst that ever was,
for pious men cannot begin
to fathom my desertion's cause.
I must have done some awful deed
for her to turn so far from me.
