Stay

Vladimir Holan

 Next Poem          

Stay with me, don't leave me,
my life is so empty
that only you can help me, proudly humble,
from asking further questions.

Stay with me, don't leave me,
have pity on my impatience
which, scrawled in a prison-ship's log,
will outlast eternity.

Stay with me, don't leave me,
you don't know anger nor will your anger last -
and where would you go, how would you feel
when you are over it? Wait a little, wait,
wait at least until
the postman comes with letters only for you!
