I Know Not You


I know not you, for you know not me

You know not what life is meant to be.

You know not why, but you will find

You know not kindness, though to you I am kind.

You know not love, nor joy, nor glee

You know not how to make me see

That you know that within a mind

Eyes are closed, and love is blind.

I now know you, for you now know me.

You now know what life is meant to be.

You now know why you will find

You now know kindness, for I was kind.
