Nevertheless

You can count on me:
I have already identified
seven reasons
we cannot love each other

Of course you are too young
and drink too much
and we might argue about 
how rarely you'll call

The girlfriend back home
is probably lovely
though the distance
will soon separate you

But what I really mean
is my fragile heart
cannot take even a moment more
disappointment

It would be too much
to be loved too little
