Come - Poem by Emilio Carrion Calvo

Come this way and end the pain,
For the shame today is too much to bear;
Release us from this nightmare,
You who soothe all bitterness.

Today we dance with you again,
For our life is no longer true;
What is real dressed like a dream,
With memories left to haunt this place.

When shall we all fools be free
From this torment our minds must grieve?
Brief indeed is this world's delight,
With our plight just endless fright.

Soon we shall see resplendent light,
As darkness becomes our treasured guide;
Forever more in eternal peace
As we quietly rest in splendorous sleep.
