A husband to his wife
I’ve had this page open all night,
Trying to write a few words of love,
But I feel nothing, no words come at all.
My separation from you is too great;
I have become cold and numb.
Fate has taken you away far too long;
My feelings have sunk down, they can no longer be reached.
I am a bear who has fallen into hibernation
Only the sun and warmth of spring can wake me.
It is my winter and you alone are my sunshine and my spring.
If we meet for a few moments it is like a warm day in the depth of winter.
I begin to thaw, but soon you leave again,
The night returns and the freeze sets in.
I wait once more for your return.
You are my spring. You are my sunshine.
