Don'T Go Far Off

Rating: 4.1
Don't go far off, not even for a day, because --
because -- I don't know how to say it: a day is long
and I will be waiting for you, as in an empty station
when the trains are parked off somewhere else, asleep.

Don't leave me, even for an hour, because
then the little drops of anguish will all run together,
the smoke that roams looking for a home will drift
into me, choking my lost heart.

Oh, may your silhouette never dissolve on the beach;
may your eyelids never flutter into the empty distance.
Don't leave me for a second, my dearest,

because in that moment you'll have gone so far
I'll wander mazily over all the earth, asking,
Will you come back? Will you leave me here, dying?

This is one which could have influenced 1997 nobel comittee... fabulous use of hyperbole!

It is the wish of every dying person. Sadly Corona have shown us the helplessness of desires when faced with the might of fate. Very touchy poem indeed. It makes me pray in my heart to have strength to bear the suffering that we as humans go through collectively.
