159. Longing

Just let me sleep with you and be with you,
adore you and caress you in my dreams
in perfect gentleness and softness
without any humdrum trivial matter to disturb us,
only you and me together in a dream that never ends
which I must dream alone without you,
calling for you in my desperation of relentless sleeplessness,
with only the minutest glimpse of hope and comfort
that I know that you exist and after all may still be faithful
to the beauty of this dream we have together
which I pray we one day never shall wake up from any more
since that is all the truth we need to keep on living:
this illusion of a love that might be some kind of reality
and in that case so much more important
than that cruel reality which keeps us separated.
