Am I joyful, or am I somber?
Am I radiant, or recoiling?
Do I reach out to you, or do I hide?
Can you tell? Will I decide?
Am I simple, or am I puzzling?
Do I caress you, or keep my distance?
Am I your true love, or just a stranger?
Will you ever know? Will I ever surrender?
Am I warm to you, or cold, impassive?
Do I allow you into me, or elude you?
Will I ever reveal myself to you, or for ever shut you out?
Please don't give up.
Keep looking, stranger, my true love.
