Tell me the story of a prince,
Of a man good at heart,
Of a gentle soul.

Tell me they exist,
Tell me there are men
Who are genuinely sweet
And who won’t break you whole.

Tell me it’s a possibility
To encounter this magic
Called kindness
In this world.

Tell me it’s not a dream
And somewhere
Someone
Is also looking
For a gentle soul
Like me.
