A Parting Benediction
by Radko Vacek
Age Group: Adult
Always women are on Venus. And I?
On Mars! Never have I been attracted
By the ones who were attracted to me,
While always the ones to whom I felt drawn
Have run away from me! She was Daphne,
I Apollo in pursuit! Well, not quite.
I am no Apollo. If even he
Could have this problem, then surely I can,
And I have, all my life! Love makes the man,
Not lust, a fact I better remember.
As long as the two people are not gay,
Even the best of friendships between two
Of the opposite sex tends to be tinged.
Even the best lovers fall out of love,
But a true friendship stays forever true.
I learn to pursue Lady Destiny,
Known as fair Wisdom with respect to me.
I was not meant to feel the racing beat
Of the heart of a lover, but instead,
To feel the love which comes with timelessness,
And all those ideals which cannot be bought,
Not to be measured, nor seen as visions
Of future states. Now, I keep fixed my eyes
Upon fair Earth dividing the two spheres,
Her ideal beauty moving me to tears!
Her loveliness is far too fair to scar,
Either with physical or mental war!
Therefore, when we part, I will wish you peace,
Praying for all your blessings to increase!
