You admire my curves.

You appreciate my care.

You listen to me like

A child not listening to his teacher

Yes, like a child, I love and care for you

You consider it to be my foolishness

How childish on your part!

You want to solve and dissolve all

But there is not all to dissolve

Some things are like air and water

Essential for life, enriching life

I hope you understand…
