Useless to my dreams


I keep walking up earlier and earlier:

Before first cock-crow, before brake a day,

Before the final fray

Of a crazy crowd outside,

Before my father appears silent in my dream...

I wake up earlier and earlier.

I am more and more often startled

By the strange feeling

That the night will sail away without me

Having snatched off

The few things I hold dear

In my earthly abode...

I am afraid, I shall remain

In an empty harbour

With a broken mast,

Alone with the deaf-and-dump pain,

Hearing only

My own heartbeat...

Probably,

Probably that's why

I wake up earlier and earlier,

Tired and aging,

Useless even to my dreams?

And I keep peering into the night till daybreak..

While by my side

The Universe

Is sleeping like a newborn child
