IF LOVE IS NOT WHAT IT SEEMS
If love is not what it seems
If love is not what it seems,
And days grow dark on awakening,
It is time for me to depart,
And seek a new path forsaking.
If the day dims when I gaze at the sun,
Then there is an inequality in my soul.
If I can no longer rejoice at all I’ve ever won,
Then all my dreams are lost,
And I wander lonely onwards
With no sense or goal.
