Come solitude sit by my side
I don’t want to be alone any more.
Be my guest take a seat
let’s look at the stars and listen to some music.
Come solitude and be my crying shoulder
for I have no one else to cry on.
The rain has the earth to fall on
but if I fall there is none to catch me.
Come solitude, join me
my tears have committed suicide in vain,
there are martyrs for a cause who survive past generations
but this victim of life is to be forgotten soon.
Come solitude, would you like some dinner?
At this table we eat bitter melancholy and sorrow
the woe has rusted my spoons and forks
my table-cloth is stained with gloom and the light went out long ago.
Come solitude, be my friend
Can I entrust you with my heart?
Warm hands have not held it in a century
and the dust has made it look opaque.
Come solitude, I beg
sit with me on this rotten bench
let’s listen to the sounds of this night falling in my life.
Come solitude, be my friend.
