You said, “Make love with me”
and I said, “I don’t feel like it tonight”
and now I feel like a heel.
Have you ever said “no” to me?
As far back as I can remember
You have responded to every come-hither look
I ever gave You.
Be patient with me, my Love
and remember the frailty of flesh,
the fickleness of emotion,
and the way every stray breeze
causes my spirit to flicker.
“Not tonight” doesn’t mean “go away”
it means please wait for me to come back.
