Mistaken Again

Did you presume my solemn gaze
To be a sign of sadness?
And did you then presume my days
Were long and void of gladness?
And did you see my tear-dimmed eye?
And did you call it sorrow?
Or did you hear my drawn-out sigh
And pity me tomorrow
Or did my trembling lips appear
To be caused by my grieving
Because you thought you saw a tear
And seeing is believing
I hate to seem too calloused then
Or sound cold and unshaken
But I suggest you look again
For I say you're mistaken
