Just One





Regard this solitary woman:
The slanting of her eyes
When she would look your way;
The treasure of her words
When she would share her heart.

The measure of her love
As she would measure yours.

Regard this solitary woman
Wrapped in silk and perfume;

Her chains are made of gold.
Her dreams are made of chains.... 

                              And somewhere in a young man's name
                              The reason for her solitude remains...
