You see I cannot see — your lifetime —
I must guess —
How many times it ache for me — today — Confess —
How many times for my far sake
The brave eyes film —
But I guess guessing hurts —
Mine — got so dim!

Too vague — the face —
My own — so patient — covers —
Too far — the strength —
My timidness enfolds —
Haunting the Heart —
Like her translated faces —
Teasing the want —
It — only — can suffice!
