REMIND ME

Dear friend, when you see
A look of anguish on my face
Eyes gazing intently
Brusqueness in my pace
Jaw firmly clenched
Shoulders held tight
Tears of sadness or frustration
Words of anger, malice, spite.
Please find the words to tell me
What it is you see
And remind me, once again
To be gentle with me
