How can it be?
Someone asking a favor of me?
Where was that someone
when I needed a helping hand,
a consoling ear?
How can that be?
Someone wanting something from me.
Never mind my bleeding heart.
My kindness is always forthcoming,
but never seems reciprocated.
What happened to love your fellow man
as respect for your fellow man?
Has it died with the passing of time?
And now you come to me
wanting something from me.
