Posted on Wednesday, October 8, 2008 in Verse


Now I come, lonely bed
Once you were made for dreams, giving strength
Home of kisses, happiness, happiness
All is changed, coffin-cold you have grown
Filled with fear when I sleep
Terror encircles me, fearful I wake again,
Wake again terrified.
Waking and wondering slowly, I feel again
See, understand again, hesitate
Falter uncertainly
Longing inspires me, rouses me, urges me
Passionate, powerful, strength rises
Falls away, vanishes
Lonely bed, lost comfort, coffin cold
Voicelessly calling me
Now I come.

(c) Endre Ady
