And, if the universe inclined
To send true love my way,
I’d have to be out of my mind
To answer, “Not today.”

And yet, until that moment’s here,
I’ll keep myself apart
And not go chasing female deer
Like some impassioned hart.

And, if I spend my life alone,
That’s more than fine by me;
It means I’ll have more time to hone
My literary esprit.

Besides, it’s not as if I’ll meet
A one who’ll make my life complete.
