For a thousand times, I wrung your warmth And tonight, I am pressed to do more Never want to know what this presages But I know that I am fit for this race I have been drowned in your tortures And the pains give me no more pleasure It's not too much to ask for the sweetness laced within your making I will wait till you breathe in me your life My muse all time The songs in my sheets are weary And the mind's getting hollows The limbs are feeble Because of the saddening cordate shadow Reflecting in sync with the face of nature I lay my ears in case you call I lay my mind in case you chose that I lay me outside just in case you came running But I want to know for how long My eyes are soaked with blobs of tears My dear, come now It seems I will die tomorrow I won't, I know Because I must have your life in me Oh! Great is the hope of my coming life
