The Presence of Love

Where were you when I needed you the most?
I realise that your mental presence is permanent.
But your physical? Oh how I missed that.
I deserve enlightenment
Into your motives
Of your physical absence.
Its no demand, my love.
For in love there are no obligations.
I'm sure your motives were as pure as water.

[Hata Bildir]
