An Offer

I came to you in tears (she said)
You helped me to get through it;
Now you can tell me what to do
And I will surely do it

I’m offering the only thing
That I have got to give;
It’s something that I want to do
A thing you can relive

The moments that we cannot be
Together, like we will:
There’s no wish you can have that I
Do not want to fulfill…

… Is gratitude a basis
For for such things, or is it wrong?
I do not know. But “love” without it
Rarely lasts
For long
