The Dark Cavalier

I am the Dark Cavalier; I am the Last Lover:
   My arms shall welcome you when other arms are tired;
I stand to wait for you, patient in the darkness,
   Offering forgetfulness of all that you desired.

I ask no merriment, no pretense of gladness,
   I can love heavy lids and lips without their rose;
Though you are sorrowful you will not weary me;
   I will not go from you when all the tired world goes.

[Hata Bildir]
