Call not for me

call not for me
when you are weeping,
when the grave
towards your empty heart
is creeping

call not for me
when you are falling,
when the worm
towards your lonely soul
is crawling

call not for the land,
nor the rising day
to calm your fears;
call not for the strong
to hold back
the night that nears;
call not for me, o friend,
call not for my arm
to ease you across
the withering sedge;
call not for my hand
to lead you towards
the darkening edge;
call not for me,
for not a word
of comfort
will i send;
not one bridge,
with pity,
will i mend

so, call not for me
when you are fading,
when the crypt,
your world of light,
is raiding

call not for me
when you are dying,
when not an eye
beside your bedside
is crying
call not for me, o friend,
call not for me
