Being gay is just like being human:
Even if you want it, you can't choose.
In everyone, beneath the day's confusion,
Night waits with truths too salient to refuse.
Grant me, then, a moment's understanding,
Given that I've given you much pain.
All that's passed between us notwithstanding,
Yet I would be close to you again.
