Reality Dawns.....

What pain...
What sweetness
The very nearness of you
And the knowledge that I will never be

What tragedy....
What joy
The comfort of your embrace
And the far away look in your eyes

I  cry
And I smile
The sunshine of your love
And the absence of your gaze
At once

I accept
I despair
What you need is ever
