Where We Differ

Where We Differ

To think my thoughts are hers,
Not one of hers is mine;
She laughs while I must sigh;
She sighs while I must whine.

She eats while I must fast;
She reads while I am blind;
She sleeps while I must wake;
Free I no freedom find.

To think the world for me
Contains but her alone,
And that her eyes prefer
Some ribbon, scarf, or stone.
