How far away you are!
You, who can love plain face;
You, who can say my true name;
You, who keeps me from falling down
And into the River
How strong are the ties which bind
Your mind and your heart to mine!
Like a spider tends to his web, you mend
The threads, which keep me suspended, alive,
Over the River
How warm is your brave embrace!
As warm as short summer months,
And brave as the open skies,
And strong as the icy hands, which pull on mine,
Dragging me into the River
I bid you, don’t let me go!
I beg you, remember me!
I’ll scream to break loose but, please,
Don’t listen to me, don’t leave!
I’m an isle in the River of Time –
I’m the loneliest place in the world
