All You Who Sleep Tonight

Posted in Poetry with tags , on November 26, 2011 by telescoper

All you who sleep tonight
Far from the ones you love,
No hand to left or right
And emptiness above –

Know that you aren’t alone
The whole world shares your tears,
Some for two nights or one,
And some for all their years.

by Vikram Seth.
