You are my friend
My only friend
Him I told
You are my gold.
My love, my heart
My soul, my spirit
My being, my feeling
My pleasure, my treasure
Him I love
His heart my alcove
Him I dote
Never think of today to be like yesterday-
calm and quiet,
And though every morn be a nameless terror
Yet every circumstance is life itself.
Do not dream of asking God
To fulfil all your dreams!
For not all dreams are sweet;
And if the stars were to rule your fate
It is in Nature that there is true peace
And sweetness that adorns her Cosmic mind
Yet another Autumn withers away
And with it the hardships which come in my way
Waste not your life in drowsy aimlessness
Wane not yourself with frenzy wanderings
Life is full of undreamt wonder
Waiting to be drunk-
It is here that I find rest
Here...near this grave.
Here son, lays your mother... my beloved
With whom my life I shared.
