The engagement


I am engaged in you
and can not help it,
and I hope that this engagement
will go on forever,
although there are minefields
all along the way
of constant separations,
travels and disruptions,
loss of contact and what more;
while only the engagement
on my part in you
remains inviolably stable,
and it’s an engagement of that kind
that’s well worth hoping for
that never should be broken.
